Human Sciences for the Middle School: A BSCS Project.
Hurd, Paul DeHart
This paper, presented at the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) conference in April, 1972, in New York City, emphasizes the need for science to become more humanistic and integrated. The author advocates that the middle school, being unique, will require a major restructuring of the present curriculum. Also included are goal statements, now being formulated by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS). Process competencies and specific objectives for each grade level, built on a conceptual hierarchy and intellectual development, are included within this new BSCS program which is to have its first writing conference in the summer of 1972. It is expected that each module will be tested throughout the school year of 1972-73, and a sample module for general use should be available for the fall term of 1973. (CP)
