Earth Science Supplement to the Syllabus, Part 3, Topics 9-14, Special Edition 1970.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
The investigations for topics 9-14 in the earth science course developed by The University of the State of New York for secondary schools are contained in this supplement to the syllabus (ED 046 749). The topics in this supplement include the erosional process, the depositional process, the formation of rocks, the dynamic crust, interpreting geological history, and landscape development and environmental change. Each set of topic investigations is preceded by the Investigations-Understandings Matrix which illustrates the relationship of the investigation to the major understandings. It can also be used to relate multimedia materials to the topic. The laboratory investigations are presented in two forms: teacher laboratory guide sheets and student laboratory guide sheets, which may be easily duplicated to provide structured procedure for the students. The level of difficulty of each investigation is indicated on the teacher guide sheet as easy, challenging, or difficult. Although these activities are in a supplement, they are considered essential to the core of the course. (PR)
