Middle Level SS&C Energy Series.
Crow, Linda W.; Aldridge, Bill G.
The project on Scope Sequence and Coordination of Secondary School Science (SS&C) was initiated by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and recommends that all students study science every year and advocates carefully sequenced, well-coordinated instruction in biology, chemistry, earth/space science, and physics. This document represents a collaborative effort between the NSTA, the American Petroleum Institute (API), the California SS&C Project, and the Texas SS&C Project. These materials were developed through a brainstorming process that included industrial scientists, science teachers from different SS&C sites, and science educators. This book is divided into 3 sections. Section I, SS&C Overview, includes a description of the projects and a K-12 sequence of SS&C science. Section II, Texas SS&C Materials, includes the following: overview, environment, fueling around, and a materials list. Section III, California SS&C Materials, includes: overview, offshore oil drilling, petroleum in our daily lives, oil exploration, oil extraction, and environment, and an appendix. (JRH)
