Social Issues in Science Curricula.
Robinson, James T.
A case is developed for including social issues in science teaching, based on a belief that such inclusion can make science more meaningful and can contribute to the development of intelligence. The Human Sciences Project, in which science and related social issues are combined in curriculum modules for students ages 11-14, is described. The content of these interdisciplinary modules is grouped into problem areas and levels of student competence. Also described are materials being developed for senior high school and college students. Other aspects of these curricula, such as student and public acceptance, and the ability of science instructors to teach social issues, are discussed. (MH)
