UNESCO Pilot Project on New Approaches and Techniques in Biology Teaching in Africa. A Guide for Pilot Project Study Groups.
This guide for pilot study groups deals with curriculum planning, the writing of materials, and evaluation methods. Included are principles to be followed in the construction of a biology syllabus for age groups 11-17, a scheme for unified science for pupils aged 11-13, criteria for selection of course content, and an example outline of content for a secondary school biology program. Guidelines are given for the writing of teacher's guides, for the selection of laboratory and field equipment, and for out-of-school activities for pupils. The general evaluation scheme includes assessment of teaching strategies and student interests. Recommendations are given for constructing achievement tests and for stating objectives. A list of objectives for science education in secondary schools is included as an appendix. (EB)
