Improvement of Scientific Literacy at the Primary Level.
Bauer, Lisa; Nelson, Doneen; Parsons, Ann; Purdum, Mary Beth
This report describes a program for improving scientific literacy at the primary level. The target population consisted of pre-kindergarten and second grade students in an expanding suburban Midwestern community. An intervention which included the identification of scientific skills and their integration into the curriculum, student exposure to scientific properties through hands-on and real-life experiences, and explicit teaching of the processes of science is described. Findings indicate that students' scientific literacy increased as a result of the intervention. (Contains 36 references.) (WRM)
