DISCUS Seventh Grade, Life Sciences, Part One.
Duval County School Board, Jacksonville, FL. Project DISCUS.
Included are instructional materials designed for use with disadvantaged students who have a limited reading ability and poor command of English. The guide is the first volume of a two volume, one year program in life science and contains these three units and activities: Measurement, 7 activities; Ecology, 12 activities; and Energy Processes, 24 activities. A formal textbook is not used in this program, and the learning process relies on class discussion supported by audiovisual materials and small group laboratory activities. Each lesson has a suggested format for teachers to follow in directing activities, with suggested teacher comments. Following each teacher section is the printed material for student use, which generally includes a list of required equipment for small group activities, introduction and procedures, and fill-in questions relating to the completed activity. The volume begins with extensive "guidelines for creating an appropriate classroom environment." (PR)
