Science: Comprehensive Curriculum Goals. A Model for Local Curriculum Development.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The purpose of this booklet is to articulate the student outcomes expected for children in grades K-12. This document seeks to reflect the major themes of science education. These common curriculum goals have been developed not to detail separate facts of science needed to be taught by every science program, but to detail a larger view of the same subject around which the facts deemed important by each individual program can be organized. The concepts and processes of the seven common curriculum goals serve as the primary organizers, unifying Oregon's approach to the learning of K-12 science. The seven strands of this curriculum include: (1) concepts; (2) processes; (3) manipulative skills; (4) interests; (5) values; (6) interactions; and (7) characteristics. The student objectives in each content strand include the essential learning skills deemed appropriate for science instruction and the common knowledge skills unique to science. Because concepts and processes are learned best in various contexts and in multiple experiences, they are pyramidical throughout the K-12 continuum. A brief list of resources is appended. (CW)
