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: nature of science; measurement; forces; work; characteristics of matter; chemistry of matter; energy; magnetism; electricity; light; heat; and careers. A list of 27 science-oriented careers and 27 organizations supplying additional information for each career, a list of reference materials, a list of suggested films available from the Louisiana Department of Education's Educational Film Catalog), a list of audiovisual suppliers, and brief comments on evaluation techniques are also provided.
