Elementary Science and Mathematics Resource Teacher Development Project. Director's Final Report.
This project had as its objectives (1) the development of programs which would lead to the improvement of teaching science and mathematics K-8 in the state of Kansas, and (2) to test a dissemination model. One-hundred and ten principals and teachers attended seminars, lectures, and demonstrations and were involved in teaching elementary school science at five different locations in Kansas during the period August 5-23, 1968. Instructional materials from the following science curriculum projects were used in this project: Introductory Physical Science, Earth Science Curriculum Project, AAAS Science - A Process Approach, Science Curriculum Improvement Study, and Elementary Science Study. Descriptive reports from participants and project leaders indicate that the project was successful. Further, definable outcomes of this project are: (1) Kansas Department of Education has established a closer working relationship with persons responsible for pre-service training of elementary teachers in Kansas Colleges; (2) Kansas school systems are more aware of and involved in elementary science curriculum activity; (3) twenty exemplary elementary school science programs have been extablished; (4) undergraduate pre-service programs are being revised.
