Science Education 11-16: Proposals for Action and Consultation. Secondary Science Curriculum Review.
Secondary Science Curriculum Review, London (England).
The Secondary Science Curriculum Review (SSCR) was established in 1981 to consider implications of providing a broader and more balanced approach to science studies for all students aged 11 to 16 years, and to stimulate and support the development work required to enable schools to make appropriate curricular provision. This paper, addressed to those interested in the form and content of science education programs for these students, presents the rationale and framework of a curriculum development program established by the Steering Committee of the Review. Sections 1 to 6 outline the background of the program to be undertaken between April 1983 and August 1986. A new direction for science studies (including time allocation, aims, criteria for development work, and implementation), program organization, and projected outcomes are among the areas considered. Sections 7 to 9 invite a wide range of agencies to consult with the SSCR on the implications of various development proposals. Various issues and questions are directed to specific audiences to assist them in providing input. These audiences include college faculty, professional associations, examination boards, employers, science teachers, subject teacher associations in areas other than science, and others. (JN)
