Cooperative College-School Science Program, Projects to Improve Science and Mathematics in the Schools, 1969 Directory.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
This directory describes the rationale of the Cooperative College-School Science Program (CCSS) of The National Science Foundation. The program aims to produce changes in school systems by projects planned jointly by schools and colleges. The projects normally provide for training of school system personnel by the cooperating college. During the 1969 financial year, grants totalling $5,596,241 were awarded. Brief descriptions of the 146 CCSS projects are given. Approximately 7000 teachers in 43 states are involved. A third of the projects focus on elementary schools and two-thirds on secondary schools. The content areas include mathematics, computer science, physical, biological and earth science, and the social sciences. Many of the projects have as their purpose the introduction into school classrooms of one of the new science or mathematics instructional programs. (EB)
