New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of General Education Curriculum Development.; State Univ. of New York, Albany.
This publication is the first product of a project to update and reorder the Science Syllabus for Middle and Junior High Schools in the state of New York. The performance objectives and criteria are provided in a general outline in the first section, which conforms to the content subdivisions in the three "processes" sections: (1) Living Things, (2) Survival of Living Things, and (3) Ecology. These three sections are of the same format "Concepts and Understandings" and their corresponding "Questions and Activities." A list of processes is also included as is a large appendix of learning activities. The publication is designed so that the understandings, questions, and learning activities are enhanced by the inclusion and referencing of program objectives, performance criteria, and process skills. Environmental considerations are infused throughout and the importance of consumer and career implications in a science program is specifically acknowledged. This syllabus could be adapted to a variety of science education situations. (MR)
