The Improvement of Science Instruction in Oklahoma. Grades 7-12.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
This publication has been prepared as a leadership guide for science teachers, secondary school administrators, and teacher educators who desire to produce competent science teachers. Science taught as inquiry is the central theme, and the "processes of science" are recommended as the proper content for all courses. The guide is organized into these chapters: Science and Scientific Inquiry, An Overview of Science Taught As Process, Recommended Science Program--Grades 7-12, Organizing a Science Program in Your School, Recommendations Concerning the Preparation of Secondary Science Teachers, Inquiry Program Model Lessons, and Inquiry Program Bibliography. More than half of the publication is devoted to the chapter on model lessons in which nine representative lessons taken from the recommended curriculum programs are presented. The recommended science programs include the curriculum projects developed during the last decade through federal government sponsorship. (Author/PR)
