Student Behavior and Science Content Categories and Subcategories for a Science Program.
Klopfer, Leopold E.
This paper presents a two dimensional chart of student behavior and subject matter content for facilitating the development of the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) science curriculum, or any science curriculum. Within this framework, behavioral objectives are formulated, science subject matter content is selected, student learning experiences are designed, and evaluation procedures are planned. Incorporated in the schema is a unique delineation of student behaviors with respect to the processes of scientific inquiry and these are integrated with categories of the student's cognitive behavior as it pertains to science learning. Included also in the behaviors dimension are the student's attitudes and interests and his orientation to the relationships between science and other aspects of culture. In the content dimension, the discussion includes new explications of the nature of scientific inquiry and the social aspects of science. (Author/EK)
