Curriculum Papers 7, Science for General Education: For the First Two Years and the Early School Leaver.
Scottish Education Dept., Edinburgh.
The syllabus prepared by the Scottish Working Party on Secondary School Science for the first two years of secondary education, when all pupils study science, is given in detail in the Working Party's report. The broad objectives for science components of courses designed for students in the third and fourth years (approximately grades 10 and 11) who are likely to leave school at the statutory leaving age are given, but less detail of possible courses is provided. The syllabi are presented within a framework of a broad rationale for science in secondary education. The resources needed for effective science teaching, the advisability of and methods for pupil-centered teaching, and techniques of assessment are discussed and illustrated by examples. Brief mention is also made of necessary teacher training and the role of teachers' centers in providing inservice education and leadership. See also SE 015 431 and SE 015 433 through SE 015 436. (AL)
