A Theoretical Framework for Multidisciplinary Science Curricula for Early Adolescents: The BSCS Human Sciences Program.
Robinson, James T.
The theoretical framework for a multidisciplinary science curriculum for early adolescents is described. Enhancing physical, cognitive, moral, social, and personal development of early adolescents is proposed instead of cultural transmission as the chief goal of education. Major elements of the framework include interface themes and subsumed concepts from biological, social, and behavioral sciences; generic questions that represent major concerns and interests of early adolescents; and problems that are proposed as curriculum components. An experimental three-year curriculum for eleven- to thirteen-year-olds is being developed and tested as an exemplar of the proposed theoretical framework. (Author)
