Science Guide for Secondary Schools.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Instructional Services.
This six-chapter guide is designed to help Georgia teachers adopt or adapt various options into the local school's science curriculum. Major areas addressed in the chapters are: (1) secondary school curriculum development (focusing on performance objectives, sequencing the curriculum, evaluation, and scientific literacy); (2) teaching methods (including methods for teaching the scientifically talented and physically/mentally disabled students); (3) managing the science curriculum; (4) classroom and laboratory safety (providing information related to using chemicals, microorganisms, plants and animals, electricity, lasers, and rockets); (5) skills and strategies teachers should have for effective teaching; and (6) evaluation methods applied to student progress and programs of study. Course outlines for biology, chemistry, physics, and physical science, a list of essential science skills, and information on field trips are provided in appendices. The list of essential science skills is keyed to three grade levels (K-4, 5-8, and 9-12) and indicates at which grade level(s) a specific skill should be introduced, developed, or reinforced. (JN)
