Middle School/Junior High Science. Focus on Excellence, Volume 2, Number 2.
Penick, John E., Ed.; Krajcik, Joseph, Ed.
Ten examples of innovative and outstanding middle school/junior high science programs are described. 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) "Seventh Grade Life Science"; (2) "The Rochester Science Program"; (3) "Laboratory at the Zoo"; (4) "PRIS2M"; (5) Environmental Physical Science"; (6) "9th Grade Earth Science"; (7) "5-8 General Science"; (8) "7th Grade Life Science and 8th Grade Earth Science"; (9) "Life Science, Earth and Physical Science, and Environmental Science"; and (10)"Field Science." A synthesis and critique of middle school/junior high science is presented. (KR)
