USMES School Study: Effects of School Strategies on USMES Utilization.
Stalker, George H.; And Others
This study is one of three designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Unified Science and Mathematics for Elementary Schools (USMES) program. The school study is essentially a discussion of the link between program dissemination and student experience, a discussion of the form taken by USMES in schools and classrooms. Part one is a statistical study designed to answer such questions as: How much time does USMES take? How much instruction in basic skills is afforded? Under what conditions is instruction in basic skills maximized? What is the actual relationship between group work, hands-on activities, and problem-solving processes, and success of sessions? Part two is nonstatistical. It consists of a general examination of USMES at five schools. The general state of USMES is examined from both a pedagogical and a political point of view. (Author/BB)
