A Descriptive Analysis of the Chemical Bond Approach, the Chemical Education Material Study, and a Representative Traditional Chemistry Course.
Crilly, Alice Roth
This study compared three one-year courses in high school chemistry. One of these, entitled Modern Chemistry, represents the "traditional" precollegiate chemistry course. The others are the Chemical Bond Approach (CBA) and the Chemical Education Material Study (CHEM Study). These are the two major revisions in high school chemistry which emerged from the curriculum reform movement of the 1950's. The investigator analyzed how these three courses attempt to educate students in the chemical discipline. Within the context of the Tyler rationale were examined: (1) course objectives, (2) learning opportunities, (3) course organization, and (4) course evaluation. The course objectives are classified within the framework of Bloom's taxonomy. Among the findings are answers to the following questions: How did the curriculum project courses originate? Is there a difference in the kind of knowledge acquired, depending upon which course is studied? (Author/LS)
