A Science Inservice Program for K-6 Teachers. FY 1987-88, Title II-A Program. Final Project Report.
Barman, Charles R.; And Others
The purpose of this project was to develop, conduct, and evaluate a K-6 science inservice program for elementary school teachers. This program was conducted in six 3-hour workshop sessions and consisted of hands-on activities, problem-solving exercises, and large and small group discussions. The individual workshop sessions focused on incorporation of the process skills in elementary science lessons, the use of effective questioning techniques, and the use of the learning cycle approach in teaching science. Eighteen elementary school teachers from a midwestern school district participated in this project. Qualitative and quantitative procedures were used to evaluate the extent to which these teachers incorporated the information presented in this inservice program into their science teaching. Both measures indicated that the information presented in this program did influence the participants' science instruction. Materials used in the workshops, including two modules and a workshop journal, are appended. Lists 4 references. (Author/YP)
