Science: Promising and Exemplary Programs and Materials in Elementary and Secondary Schools. [Science Education Information Report.]
Helgeson, Stanley L.; And Others
This document contains 36 programs and/or material listings that were nominated by at least three persons and for which there was evidence of the quality of the program or materials. Reviewers looked for positive evaluation data on the impact of the materials on students, or other information that assessed the quality of the program or materials, or both. This resulted in a selected listing of programs and materials. Print and/or nonprint materials for students' use also had to be available. Programs and materials are listed in four sections: Elementary-Secondary (K-12), Elementary (K-8), Junior High/Middle School, and Secondary (7-12). One college program, which could also be used with high school students in a second-level science course, is also included. A final section provides some comments relative to the variety of programs and materials identified as a results of this project. Topics include physical science, engineering, life sciences/health, computers, physics, telecommunications, marine biology, environmental education, ecosystems, geography, technology, scientific inquiry, water quality, earth science, field trips, and problem solving. Nine resource organizations and 26 references are listed. (KR)
