Sharing the Vision: Curriculum Articulation in Math and Science K-U in an Urban School District.
Case, Karen I.; And Others
This paper presents a site and project description and the conceptual framework of the Curriculum Articulation Project (CAP) and its relation to current math and science education reform initiatives. CAP is based on the notion that the teacher is the best individual to ascertain the learning needs of the urban, and often economically disadvantaged, youth. The project addresses the concerns of reform proposals in math and science by striving to articulate the current curriculum, by ranking the skills and knowledge necessary to provide science and math literacy to urban youngsters, and by integrating math and science in units that address the unique needs of city youth. An appendix includes a unit from the program entitled "The Clean Water Problem," which is a CAP project designed for grades seven and eight. (Contains 17 references.) (GLR)
