Science/Technology/Society. Focus on Excellence, Volume 1, Number 5.
Penick, John E., Ed.; Meinhard-Pellens, Richard, Ed.
This document describes 10 examples of innovative and outstanding science/technology/society (STS) programs. These programs were selected using state criteria and at least four independent reviewers. While Project Synthesis offered a desired state, these examples of excellence provided views of what is already a reality. The goals of an exemplary science program are provided along with the criteria for excellence. The programs described are: (1) "Unified Science Modules"; (2) "Solar Project Class"; (3) "Environmental Science"; (4) "Energy and Us"; (5) "Mankind: A Biological and Social View"; (6) "Wallingford Auditing Technical Team"; (7) "Science/Mathematics/Computer Magnet School"; (8) "Contemporary Issues in Science"; (9) "Earthscope"; and (10) "Marine Environmental Program." Also included are a critique on STS and a paper on teaching STS in secondary school. (KR)
