This curriculum guide, developed to establish statewide curriculum standards for the Louisiana Competency-based Education Program, contains the minimum competencies and process skills that should be included in an earth science course. It consists of: (1) a rationale for an effective science program; (2) a list and description of four major goals of science; (3) a list and description of eight basic process skills (such as predicting and classifying) and five integrated processes (such as controlling variables and defining operationally); and (4) an eight-part curriculum outline. These parts provide performance objectives correlated with a concept, process skill(s), and suggested activities for each of the following major topic areas: five areas of earth science and introduction to scientific processes; atomic structure; physical geology; historical geology; oceanography; meteorology; astronomy; and energy resources. A list of audiovisual suppliers and brief comments on evaluation techniques are also provided. (JN)
