Lively Elementary Science Programs. A Handbook of Suggestions for Introducing and Maintaining Innovative Science Activities.
Whitla, Dean K.; Pinck, Dan C.
This handbook contains several suggestions for introducing and maintaining innovative science activities. It supplements the published research findings of the Harvard Study Committee ("Essentially Elementary Science") as well as the summary of those findings ("Something of Value") by offering teachers, administrators, school committee directors, teacher training leaders, and State Department of Education personnel a description of important management alternatives that can be selected and pursued to bring the benefits of NSF programs to elementary students. Topics presented include research programs developed related to teacher education, implementation of science curricula related to use of skilled teachers to train others, teacher-directed centers for the advancement of teaching and learning, the need for information relating to attitudes and resources, and the need for trials or pilot programs for new curricula.
