Increasing Opportunities for Scientificy Literacy: A Self-Evaluation Packet. Opportunity Systems in Science and Technology Study Series, Volume III.
Guthrie, Larry F.
Designed to assist teachers in the improvement of science instruction at the secondary level, this third of a three part series of guidebooks of the Opportunity Systems in Science and Technology Study Series provides information and exercises on evaluating science programs and teaching. Initially a review is presented of the components of scientific literacy and the findings of the Opportunity Systems in high school science study are summarized. The following sections consist of a form for organizing information on particular aspects of the science program and also a series of points to consider in relation to the questions posed. Topics addressed in the sections include: (1) science curriculum structure (offering suggestions for constructing a science course chain and program alternatives); (2) exercises of opportunity (highlighting enrollment aspects); and (3) emphasis on scientific literacy in instruction (examining the factors of time and focus already given to components of scientific literacy).
