DISCUS Eighth Grade, Physical Sciences, Part 2.
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 second volume of a two volume, one year program in physical science, and contains these four units and activities: Buoyancy, nine activities; Solubility, six activities; Crystals and Crystal Growing, seven activities; and Using Electricity, eight 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 has a list of required equipment for small group activities, introduction and procedures, and fill-in questions relating to the completed activity. One or more full page diagrams for making transparencies for overhead projection are included for most of the activities. (PR)
