K-12 Science Curriculum Guide.
Morgan, Walter; And Others
This K-12 science curriculum guide includes the following: (1) a philosophy statement; (2) related district educational goals; (3) components and major objectives; (4) scope and sequence; (5) instructional objectives; (6) guidelines for the evaluation of student performance; (7) instructional units; (8) curriculum guide evaluation forms; and (9) a bibliography for the preparation of the guide. The philosophy and related district educational goals provide the framework for the specific contributions of the science discipline while the components and major objectives outline the fundamental elements of science around which the curriculum can be organized. The content of science is the vehicle for the achievement of the objectives under each component and the scope of this content is embodied in a three-dimensional matrix in a scope, sequence, and instructional objectives chart. One dimension of this matrix is delineated by the processes of science, the second by the concepts, and the third by the units of instruction. The intercept of these three axes defines a cell in which one or more instructional objectives is stated, and establishes the lower limits of student achievement. Each instructional unit includes a content outline, objectives and suggested activities, resources, and exemplary activities, and a sample evaluation instrument or technique. (GS)
