An Alternative Plan in High School Physics.
Euller, John E.; Smith, James E.
This paper describes a physics course at Eastridge High School in Rochester, New York, which is highly adaptable to a variety of student interests and needs. Three content streams in Physical Science Study Committee (PSSC), Project Physics and New York State Regents physics are contained in one course. Individual materials for all three streams have been developed. All three proceed at the same time in a single integrated classroom-laboratory. Laboratory work proceeds at the same time as all other activities. The student assignments are made for six time blocks through the school year with no deadlines within each block. Each assignment consists of basic requirements with optional materials provided. Included are sample topic assignment sheets, option plan for grading, student record card, and the Project Physics schedule for one year. (TS)
