Individualized Instruction in Science, Earth Space Project, Learning Activities Package.
Kuczma, R. M.
Learning Activity Packages (LAP) relating to the earth and space are presented for use in sampling a new type of learning for a whole year. Eighteen topics are incorporated into five units: (1) introduction to individualized learning, (2) observation versus interpretation, (3) chemistry in the space age, (4) the space age interdisciplines, and (5) humanities and space. A set of self-directed activities is given in each topic, leading students to learn on their own and enter into group discussions. Most activities are especially designed for the purpose and given in separated sheets, while others are in connection with textbooks such as "Investigating the Earth"; "Time, Space, Matter"; "Modern Chemistry" by Metcalfe and others; "Science and Serendipity" by Halacy, Jr.; Apollo missions' slides, etc. Pretests, self-evaluation tests, and posttests are used in evaluation. Also included in the appendices are two remedial units dealing with calculation with decimals and scientific notation of numbers. (CC)
