Enrichment Opportunities Guide. A Resource for Teachers and Students in Math and Science.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Publications.
This guide was developed for two purposes: to enrich science and mathematics programs in schools and to encourage the professional growth of teachers of science and mathematics. A basic premise behind the development of this guide is that all students should have a variety of learning experiences, especially students in categorical programs such as Chapter 1, bilingual, migrant, and other compensatory education programs. These students should see that the study of science is not confined to the classroom but offers a way to investigate and understand the curious phenomena to be found in the every-day world. Similarly, mathematics is not only the scientist's primary tool but also a world of its own full of curious phenomena. This publication lists contests and fairs for individuals and teams; extracurricular opportunities for students in California; and professional recognition, awards, grants, professional growth and development programs, and affiliations for teachers in California. Details and recipients of the "Search for Excellence" in science and mathematics education are included. (CW)
