Showalter, Victor M.
Reported is an eight-week seminar conducted for ten junior high school science teachers.

Activities provided for each phase are described. Results of evaluation of the seminar by participants are reported. Recommendations are made relating to the provision and design of similar seminars. Appendices include a list of participants, a partial listing of references used in the seminar, two typical weekly schedules for phase one, a copy of the proposal for the seminar as submitted for funding, and participants' general reactions to the seminar.
