NETWORK, Inc., Andover, MA.; National Center for Improving Science Education, Andover, MA.; Biological Sciences Curriculum Study, Boulder, CO.
This report is a blueprint for the creation of an effective, national program of science education for elementary school children in the United States. It draws together information about curriculum, instruction, assessment, and teacher development for elementary science. It was written in response to a widely expressed need to improve education in general and science education in particular. It is directed primarily to those who have a concern with, and a responsibility for, the education of children in public schools: elementary school teachers and principals, science specialists, curriculum directors, assessment personnel, staff development leaders, school district superintendents and administrators, state and federal education officials, university professors, and policy boards at all levels of education. Thirteen recommendations to federal, state, and local officials are included. An annotated bibliography of 27 references is provided. (CW)
