STARS (Secondary Training for Alaskan Rural Students): Science. Draft Copy.
Shepard, Gary; Costello, Bill
STARS (Secondary Training for Alaskan Rural Students) materials resulted from extensive rewriting of the Vocational Adult Secondary Training (VAST) materials produced by the British Columbia Department of Education, after those materials had been used with the 9th and 10th graders on Kodiak Island. Revision was done by teachers who had been using the materials and by an experienced Alaskan curriculum materials consultant, and was done specifically for rural Alaskan students. The units are designed so that the average 9th or 10th grader should usually complete all materials in 1 year. The STARS "Science" student workbook covers four units, consisting of human biology, first aid, weather, and simple machines. For each unit there are reading selections, supplemental aids, and activities. A unit test is provided at the end of each unit. Additional reading assignments are made from other reference sources. Answer keys are supplied for the exercises and for the unit tests. (BDR)
