Mini-Units, Teachers' Manual, Senior High School Science.
Hughlett, Robert E.; Woodfield, C. W.
This manual is the teacher's guide for the two mini-units "Observing" and "The Nature of Models," part of a series of units designed for non-academic high school students by the 1970 Senior High School Science Workshop Committee. Each unit consists of five lessons presented in the format: objectives, materials, references, teaching suggestions, and procedure. The overall objectives of the unit on observing are: (1) to demonstrate an increase in the number of valid observations after the instructional sequence and (2) to state concepts which delineate the nature and scope of observation. The unit on models is designed to provide an opportunity for students to produce models based on prior knowledge, data, and the inferences that can be drawn from these two areas. The activities require a minimum of equipment. (PR)
