New Trends in Integrated Science Teaching, Volume I, 1969-70.
Richmond, P. E.
This volume reviews recent developments in integrated science instruction, concentrating mainly on works at the elementary and junior secondary levels. Examples of how various educators have attempted to define integrated science are presented in part one. This section also provides general background on the trend toward integration. The rationale underlying programs in progress, together with some examples of these programs, is considered in part two. As a supplement to this section the appendix lists many of the projects which may be reviewed for further information. Part three describes the psychological and social factors which should be considered in planning curriculum changes. The introductory discussion is in both French and English, as is the first paper in part one which explains the context in which this publication was planned and explains how the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization can help countries develop integrated science teaching. Approximately half of the remaining articles in part one are in French and the rest are in English, with papers in parts two and three in English only. (PR)
