Indian River School District Science Curriculum Guidelines.
Banks, Dennis E.; And Others
This monograph includes guidelines for science courses in grades seven, eight, and nine, and for biology, chemistry and physics. Seventh grade Environmental Life Science is lab-oriented and based on a variety of student experiences. Course objectives are presented as well as the course outline. A multitext approach, with a suggested textbook list, is organized on reading ability level. The Earth Science Course, grade eight, focuses the attention of the student on the physical world in which he lives. Instructional materials suggested include films, filmstrips, and reference books and publications. The ninth grade curriculum exposes students to many physical science areas as well as a basic background for physics and chemistry students. A Materials List suggests texts and experiments that could be incorporated into the program. The major objectives of Biology I, the course content and supplementary materials are built around the BSCS green and yellow versions, an ecological approach. Supplementary materials include lab exercises, field exercises and films. Included in the chemistry curriculum are plans for an academic chemistry section and a terminal science section. Cotton and Lynch's "CHEMISTRY: An Investigative Approach" is used for academic students and Metcalfe, Williams, and Castka's MODERN CHEMISTRY, for the non-academic course. The textbook "Modern Physics" by Del, Metcalfe and Williams is used in the physics course. (EB)
