Science Objectives for 1993-2000--Pacific Region Draft. DS Manual 2200.1.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC. Pacific Region.
This document is a guide for planning, development, implementation, and evaluation of the science education program within the Department of Defense (DoD) Dependent Schools System. It was developed by teachers, administrators, parents, and students from the perspective of what they wanted students to be like on high school graduation day as the result of science experiences received while attending DoD schools. The developers felt that science study in DoD schools should be hands-on and provide learners with a realistic and functional understanding of the world of science. Teachers are encouraged to use this guide as the focal point of their science program, realizing that textbooks and activities are aids to learning. The program is based on six major program strands including: develop positive attitudes; apply rational and creative thinking processes; demonstrate an awareness of the global significance of science and technology; acquire, comprehend, and apply scientific knowledge; utilize science experiences in planning a personal future; and use the language of science. Objectives are given for grades K-12. (CW)
