LIFE AND EARTH SCIENCE, JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
MAHLER, FRED
CURRICULUM GUIDES FOR GRADE 7 "LIFE SCIENCE" AND GRADE 8 "EARTH SCIENCE" WERE DEVELOPED BY 24 AREA TEACHERS AND THREE SAM HOUSTON STATE COLLEGE PROFESSORS. THE PROJECT WAS SUPPORTED BY THE TEXAS SMALL SCHOOL ASSOCIATION, THE LOCAL SCHOOLS, AND FUNDS FROM THE TITLE III PROGRAM. THE TEACHER GUIDES WERE PREPARED TO IMPROVE THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE PROGRAMS IN THE IMMEDIATE 13-COUNTY AREA AND WERE PRIMARILY TO HELP THE TEACHER RATHER THAN TO SERVE AS A DIRECT STUDENT AID. THE PRINCIPAL CONCERN WAS TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND GUIDANCE FOR THE NEW TEACHER, THE TEACHER TEACHING OUT OF HIS FIELD, AND THE TEACHER WHO HAD NOT YET COMPLETED A DEGREE PROGRAM. THE GUIDE ON LIFE SCIENCE HAS 12 CHAPTERS AND IS BUILT AROUND QUESTIONS THAT WOULD CONCERN AND INVOLVE A SEVENTH GRADER IN LIFE SCIENCE. THE EARTH SCIENCE GUIDE HAS 16 CHAPTERS AND THE SAME FORMAT, BUT IS DIRECTED AT GRADE 8 STUDENTS. EACH CHAPTER CONTAINS (1) STATEMENTS OF OBJECTIVES, (2) BACKGROUND INFORMATION, (3) STUDENT ACTIVITIES, (4) QUESTIONS WHICH CAN BE USED IN STIMULATING DISCUSSIONS, (5) EVALUATION QUESTIONS, AND (6) A BIBLIOGRAPHY. NUMEROUS DIAGRAMS AND CHARTS WHICH COULD BE DUPLICATED OR MADE INTO TRANSPARENCIES ARE INCLUDED. (DS)
