STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND TEACHER DEMONSTRATIONS ARE EMPHASIZED AND MANY ACTIVITIES IN BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, AND PHYSICS ARE DESCRIBED. NUMEROUS DIAGRAMS ARE INCLUDED. OTHER AREAS DISCUSSED ARE (1) STUDENT EVALUATION, (2) TEACHING METHODS, (3) LESSON PLANNING AND SPECIMEN LESSONS, (4) SCIENCE FOR THE ACADEMICALLY UNSUCCESSFUL, (5) THE RELATIONSHIP OF SCIENCE TO OTHER SUBJECTS, (6) LABORATORY ORGANIZATION, (7) TEACHING AND LEARNING AIDS, (8) WRITTEN WORK, AND (9) THE SCIENCE LIBRARY.
