Science In a Social CONtext: Teacher's Guide.
Addinell, Sue, Comp.; Solomon, Joan, Comp.
Science In a Social CONtext is a series of eight books based on the project SISCON-in-Schools. The books provide a new course in science and society for general studies at sixth-form level. The course has been specially designed to make scientific problems accessible to the non-scientist, as well as to explain the social aspects of science to the scientists. This teaching guide includes: (1) information on planning for the course; (2) comments on instructional strategies (including use of experimental work, discussions, films, television, magazines, and simulations and games); and (3) information on the eight units. Unit titles are: Ways of Living; How Can We Be Sure?; Technology, Invention, and Industry; Evolution; The Atomic Bomb; Energy; Health, Food, and Population; and Space, Cosmology, and Fantasy. The information provided with each unit includes a unit summary and lists of experiments, books, discussion topics, field trip sites, television series, 16mm films, and sources of information. The course syllabus, sample examination questions, and a list of film libraries are provided in appendices. (JN)
