[Individualizing Instruction in Science in the Small School.]
Munger, Deane L.; Steen, Marshall T.
Experimental programs in the teaching of science, introduced in two small schools in Colorado, are discussed and evaluated by the teachers involved. The first program is a student-directed approach to the teaching of biology, with an emphasis on scientific processes rather than traditional subject matter. The second program of individualized instruction is in advanced science research. A complete discussion of program planning and implementation is presented. In both cases, the instructors felt that their students gained in self-discipline and that this gain would be of much benefit in their future schooling. Also, in both cases, the teachers were planning to continue the new approaches to the teaching of science. (DB)
