The Carroll County Elementary Science Program: A Hands On Approach. An AASA Staff Development Award Winning Program.
Carroll County Public Schools, Westminster, MD.
This staff development program was directed toward the implementation of a new, hands-on elementary science program. The primary focus was three-fold: (1) to train teachers to implement a new program; (2) to increase the time devoted to science instruction; and (3) to provide teachers with additional science content background. This approach significantly altered teacher behaviors both in the amount and kinds of science instruction they imparted to students. Data indicated that as a result of this staff development project, teachers implemented the new program at a rate and depth that far exceeded what is customary based upon national studies. This document includes a program overview, a discussion of the assessment of the program, and a discussion of program outcomes. (Author/CW)
