The deliberations of the Co-ordinating Meeting for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) Program in Integrated Science Teaching held in May, 1971 are contained in this report. The report first reviews the recent developments and trends in integrated science teaching at the national, regional and international levels. Particular emphasis is placed on developments which have taken place during the last two years. UNESCO's current program in integrated science is described. This consists of these four areas of UNESCO activities: (1) a series of publications in integrated science teaching; (2) workshops on a regional, sub-regional and national basis to exchange information, to examine particular aspects of integrated science teaching and to study particular programs; (3) pilot experiments on a national basis for the development of new methods and materials for integrated science teaching at the primary and lower secondary levels, and for the training of science teachers; and (4) technical services to Member States through UNESCO field experts concerned with integrated science teaching. Major trends and problems in integrated science teaching and suggestions for UNESCO's future program in integrated science teaching are reviewed in the report. (Author/PR)
