Penick, John E., Ed.
Eight examples of innovative and outstanding earth 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. Programs described are: (1) "Computer Assisted Laboratory Science"; (2) "Geology Is"; (3) "Ninth Grade Earth Science"; (4) "Accelerated Earth and Space Science"; (5) "Earth Science for the Twenty-First Century"; (6) "Indoor, Outdoor Earth Science"; (7) "Middle Earth Science"; and (8) "Earth Science Program." A review and critique of earth science exemplary programs is presented. (KR)
