Development and Evaluation of an Experimental Curriculum for the New Quincy (Mass.) Vocational-Technical School. The Science Curriculum.
Champagne, Audrey; Albert, Anne
Activities concerning the development of the science curriculum of Project ABLE are summarized. The science curriculum attempts to relate science content to vocational areas where applicable, but emphasizes generalizations which the student will apply in his specific vocational field. Intended for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, the curriculum consists of units in behavioral science, biological science, sex education, chemistry, and physics. Twenty students were chosen to participate in the implementation of the science material which began with a perceptual unit. Due to a number of difficulties, the science program has achieved only initial stages of its plan. Tasks remaining are the analysis of student and teacher evaluations and the implementation of the remaining part of the prepared curriculum and its revision. Several project materials are appended.
