Flint, Dana R.; And Others
Two of the sessions at the technological literacy conference were panel discussions on the promises, practices, and priorities of Science, Technology and Society (STS) Education and urban minorities for elementary school and secondary school students. Papers presented and discussed during these sessions are presented. "STS and Urban Minority K-8 Students: Empowering through Education" by Dana R. Flint recommends strategies that can be used with elementary school students, as does "Empowerment of Urban Minorities through STS: Practice at the Elementary School Level" by Frederick A. Staley. Paul Jablon presented "An Effective STS Instructional Model for Academic Success with Urban At-Risk Students: Projects, Peers, Personalization, Politics, and Potpourri," which examines the BONGO program, an interdisciplinary, team-taught, and project-oriented program for high school students. "Science/Technology/Society and Urban Minorities: Promising Approaches" by Saligrama C. SubbaRao outlines several promising strategies to teach STS courses to urban minorities.
