Biological Sciences Curriculum Study Newsletter Number 53.
Clark, George M., Ed.
This newsletter presents some insight into the program, the Human Sciences, prepared for sixth-grade students with emphasis on the module, Behavior. This module focuses on aspects of the study of interaction between organisms and their environment. Other modules included in the program are: (1) Survival, (2) Sense or Nonsense, (3) The Learning Dome, and (4) Growing. Another article presents certain aspects of the impact of the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) programs. It specifically points to the need for designing examinations that reflect the philosophy of the BSCS as a means for developing and maintaining more positive attitudes on the part of students. A paper is presented on the thought processes inherent in BSCS programs, giving a sample of an analysis of a written report made for a given activity from BSCS Blue Version. A progress report is included on the evaluation of the program, ME AND MY ENVIRONMENT. Other items included in the newsletter include a BSCS Materials List, a Letter to the BSCS, and some teaching hints from Have You Tried This. (EB)
