Program Objectives for Science. Revised.
Bednarczyk, Angela; And Others
The guide lists program objectives for science instruction of hearing impaired students at Kendall Demonstration Elementary School. The curriculum, it is explained, is based on theories of J. Piaget. Objectives are stated in terms of process skills within four Piagetian stages of development: pre-operational, transition to concrete, concrete, and transition to formal. Process terms used in the behavioral objectives are defined (observation, classification, communication, measurement, investigation, prediction, and formulation and testing of hypotheses). Science content of the objectives addresses three major categories (sample subcategories in parentheses): physical science (properties of matter, energy, force, work, and motion); earth science (geology, climatology and oceanography, and astronomy); and biological science (growth and reproduction, habit, structure, human application, and human reproduction). An explanation of student placement within the curriculum and a brief listing of sources of material are also provided. Comments from the curriculum evaluation are summarized in terms of scholarship, usefulness, equity, communicability, and appeal. (CL)
