The Coastal Zone: Man and Nature. An Application of the Socio-Scientific Reasoning Model.
Maul, June Paradise; And Others
The curriculum model described here has been designed by incorporating the socio-scientific reasoning model with a simulation design in an attempt to have students investigate the onshore impacts of Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) gas and oil development. The socio-scientific reasoning model incorporates a logical/physical reasoning component as defined by the Kohlbergian paradigm and a decision-making strategy based on the work of Dewey. The curriculum utilizes role playing, simulations, trend analysis, dilemma discussions, scenario writing, hypothesis generation and testing, problem solving, variable manipulation, and model building. An evaluation for the curriculum is described. Incorporated are tests of social/moral reasoning skills, critical thinking skills, and logical and physical reasoning skills. (BB)
