Hicks, Debby Carter
This practicum reports on a project designed to improve middle school students' science scores. The project used three general strategies to improve science learning: (1) the inclusion of multiple hands-on activities and techniques in the science classroom; (2) the implementation of portfolio assessment; and (3) the inclusion of a Multiple Intelligences approach to teaching. The study reports that 164 of 180 students met the school district requirements for successful completion of middle school science. (Contains 37 references.) (WRM)
