The Status of Middle School and Junior High School Science, Volume II: Technical Report.
Hurd, Paul DeHart; And Others
It is noted that much of what is known about middle and junior high schools is extrapolated from data on elementary or secondary schools. This study is designed as a systematic review of the current status of science teaching at these levels in the United States as a foundation from which curriculum modifications can be reasonably undertaken. The document contains the following sections: (1) The Middle School, Its Philosophy and Rationale; (2) Analysis of Major Committee Reports with Respect to Middle and Junior High School Science; (3) Analysis of Middle and Junior High School Science Programs; (4) Research Studies of Science Instruction in Middle and Junior High Schools; (5) Innovative and Exemplary Science Programs; and (6) A Context for Science Education: A Conceptual Framework for the English and Beyond.
