Guidelines for Indiana School Science Programs K-12.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis.
This publication is a curriculum guide intended to help implement coordinated K-12 science programs by serving as a framework of reference. The performance objectives that should be developed by students who study science are written in general terms and constitute the heart of the volume. The lists of performance objectives include the processes which the student would use in achieving the objective, the conceptual scheme with which the objective may be identified, a statement of the performance objective, and the values and attitudes that performance of the objective should develop. There is a performance list for each of these grade categories: kindergarten and elementary; middle school and junior high; and senior high school. The introductory chapters review the philosophy, goals and the following themes in school science programs: the processes of sciencing; the conceptual schemes of science; the values and attitudes derived from science learning experiences; psycho-motor skills in science learning experiences; and the subject matter of science. Additional guidelines for sequencing the programs and textbook evaluation are provided in the appendix. An annotated bibliography is included. (PR)
