Individualized Instruction in Science, Time-Space-Matter, Learning Activity Packages.
Kuczma, R. M.
Learning Activity Packages (LAP) relating to time, space, and matter are presented for use in sampling a new type of learning for a whole year. Besides the unit on introduction to individualized learning, 11 major topics are incorporated into three other units: (1) observation of the physical world, (2) space and exploration for environmental benefit of earth, and (3) exploring the planet earth. A set of self-directed activities is given in each topic, leading the students to learn on their own and participate in class discussions. Most activities are adopted from the content of earth science textbooks, while others are in connection with selected filmstrips and science series. Excerpts concerning the importance of information gained from moon, learning from the moon, geology of Apollo 15 moon landing site, man's changing view of the earth, and keeping up to date on the moon are included along with a message to citizens of tomorrow. Pretests, self-evaluation tests, and posttests are used in evaluation. As appendices, two remedial units dealing with calculation with decimals and scientific notation of numbers are provided. (CC)
