An Educational Development Case Study: An Elementary Science Information Unit.
Hutchins, C. L.
Described is an information package with information on six science programs suitable for use in elementary schools. The programs selected for inclusion in the information unit were Elementary Science Study, Inquiry Development Program, Minnesota Mathematics and Science Teaching Project, Science Curriculum Improvement Study, Conceptually Oriented Program in Science, and Science--A Process Approach. Five major phases used to conceptualize, develop, and test the information package are described. In the first phase, the goals of the package were outlined. The second phase involved the development of the first complete form of the information package. In the third phase, a completely revised package was developed using the modifications recommended at the previous phase. In the fourth phase, the product was revised and used in a large number of sites across the country. The fifth phase was the development of the final product and its dissemination. This document contains several photographs of the information package as well as a discussion of the total program budget, and the costs for each phase. Bibliography. (LC)
