Choosing a Science Program for the Elementary School. Occasional Papers Number Twenty-Four.
Hausman, Howard J.
This monograph deals with the kinds of elementary school science programs available today and how schools might go about choosing among them. The author advocates that every elementary school should have science classes for three or more periods each week; elementary school science is best taught as a "hands-on" subject; elementary science activities should be taught by the regularly assigned teacher in a self-contained classroom; elementary science activities should be aligned to progression of elementary skills, knowledge, and concepts; and non-textbook programs should be employed, or if textbooks are utilized, frequent science activities for all children should be embedded in the science program.
