Chemistry Curriculum Guide. Bulletin 1660.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
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 a chemistry 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) a 15-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: the science of chemistry; mathematics of chemistry; matter and energy; chemical shorthand; stoichiometry and the mole; atomic structure; periodic classification; chemical bonding; physical states of matter; solutions; reaction rate and chemical equilibrium; acids, bases, and salts; oxidation and reduction reactions; nuclear chemistry; and organic chemistry. Resource materials (including lists of suggested films, demonstration sources, and audiovisual suppliers) and brief comments on evaluation techniques are also provided. (JN)
