Science 25. Curriculum Guide. Revised.
Northwest Territories Dept. of Education, Yellowknife.
This science curriculum is an activity-oriented program in which an attempt has been made to provide sufficient information for non-science specialists to enable them to offer an effective course at the grades 10 and 11 levels. This curriculum offers a solution to the unique needs of life in the Canadian Northwest Territories. The role of technology in science and everyday life as well as the science/technology/society connection are emphasized. The students' needs, interests, abilities, and cognitive levels were the major criteria used in the selection and presentation of these activities and materials. The Science 25 Curriculum includes administrative guidelines, format/time allotments, unit outlines, curriculum details/resources, and elective units. The required units cover non-renewable/renewable resources, chemistry in daily life, construction science, and human pathology and health. The required units give detailed background information and laboratory activities on each topic. The elective units include: (1) astronomy; (2) human reproduction; (3) drug and alcohol abuse; (4) buying and selling; (5) nutrition; (6) getting enough oxygen; and (7) photography. Information is given on the content of the unit and where the materials for the unit can be purchased. A program evaluation questionnaire for use with students is appended. (KR)
