New Directions for Science Curriculum Development.
Proposed is an organizational plan for a K-12 science curriculum. The paper is organized into three parts. Part I proposes certain general objectives of instruction as a framework on which a K-12 science curriculum is to be built. The concepts of general education and scientific literacy are discussed in detail. Part II considers the "forces" tending to establish a unified or interdisciplinary structure for science in education. Part III deals with a model that attempts to relate the various elements of curriculum. The model is based on the premise that unified science is a valid and useful concept. The fundamental ideas or "conceptual schemes" of science are considered in the development of this model. A bibliography is appended. (BC)
