Readings in Science Education for the Elementary School, Second Edition.
Victor, Edward; Lerner, Marjorie S.
The book of selected readings was designed to include articles which give a clear picture of elementary science today and to familiarize pre-service teachers with professional journals in education and the teaching of science. It updates an earlier edition published in 1967. The book is organized into eight sections: the role of science in the elementary school; organizing and planning for teaching elementary science; the teaching of elementary science; the evaluation of elementary science; materials and facilities for elementary science; improving the quality of elementary science teaching; inquiry and process in elementary science; and recent curriculum developments in elementary science (including discussion of Minnesota Mathematics and Science Teaching Project (MINNEMAST), Conceptually Oriented Program in Elementary Science (COPES), The Science Manpower Project (SMP), and University of Illinois Elementary School Science Project).
