The Intermediate Science Curriculum Study Spanish language science instruction manual for the intermediate grades focuses on energy of many types. The soft bound volume uses self-pacing and individualized learning to guide the students through a series of experiments. Basically, the students are asked to think about what they do and see, evaluate whether or not they understand, and review the material. Subject material includes: electrical energy; making batteries; electrolysis; energy in action; various types of energy; a model of particles; particle reactions; and calories. Each chapter contains a materials list, a short note about chapter emphasis, and specific points of interest, followed by an introduction of the subject. A series of related experimental activities follows, with notes and questions for the student based on observation of the particular phenomena involved. Illustrations often indicate correct methodology for the experiments and related principles. English language teacher education materials and a separate student workbook which contains self-evaluation forms for each chapter are available for this module. (SB)
