Biomedical Interdisciplinary Curriculum Project: Implementation Manual for High School Personnel.
Biomedical Interdisciplinary Curriculum Project, Berkeley, CA.
The Biomedical Interdisciplinary Curriculum Project (BICP) is a two-year interdisciplinary precollege curriculum designed to prepare high school students for entry into college and vocational programs leading to a career in the health field. Composed of three separate yet interrelated courses with interdisciplinary relationships between mathematics, science and social science, the curriculum package is designed with an emphasis on science, a great part of which is health content, which has been selectively integrated into the mathematics and social science courses. This manual is designed to assist high school personnel in implementing the BICP. It presents an overview of BICP, providing the rationale, objectives, format, and content of the curriculum package. Tables list unit titles and content for the courses of Biomedical Mathematics, Biomedical Science, and Biomedical Social Science. The Biomedical Instrument Package (BIP), Biomedical Practicum, and guidelines for the biomedical teaching team, teacher, student, and administration, are generally described. Curriculum and budget approval, implementation costs, course scheduling, and preservice and inservice training are also discussed. (CS)
