Implementing Curriculum Change in Elementary School Science. Final Report.
Carruth, Irby B.
The implementation of the Science - A Process Approach in more than 70 school districts (about 9,000 elementary school classrooms) in the state of Texas is described in this report. The following objectives were established for the implementation project: demonstrate a curriculum innovation in science; demonstrate an inservice education program that contains a model for inservice activity in other subject areas; conduct leadership training and coordinate the subsequent activities for staff of school districts or regional service center in the state; and develop alternative approaches to inservice education based on insights gained in the evaluation activities. The appendices contain two related conference reports. The first conference report describes the 1968 Leadership Conference for individuals with responsibility in continuing teacher education programs in the implementation of new curriculum in science in the elementary school. The report "5th Science Conference for Teachers Using A Process Approach to Elementary School Science" presents the rationale for the process approach. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (PR)
