This seven-part guide is intended for use in defining curricula for a wide clientele of adult learners in British Columbia who want to improve their knowledge, skills, and understanding in science. Part 1 explains the guide's place in the provincial curriculum development and articulation processes, defines the three purposes of the guide, outlines the scope of the curriculum, and provides an overview of curriculum goals and instructional units. Part 2 begins with a perspective of the current and future needs of Adult Basic Education (ABE) Science followed by guidelines for specific program and course planning, with representative course designs. Parts 3, 4, and 5, respectively, contain samples of fundamental, intermediate, and advanced instructional units. Each unit contains a topic outline, purpose statement, identification of required background, key ideas, learning objectives and activities, and list of resources. Subject areas considered include general science, biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science. Part 6 presents a variety of ideas to consider in planning ABE science instruction. Brief sections on principles of adult learning, advising and placing students, and student evaluation are included. Part 7 contains sections on laboratory, print, and audiovisual resources; lists of professional references; and addresses of publishers and suppliers. (JN)
