Designing Curriculum To Meet National Standards.
Singer, Jon; Marx, Ronald W.; Krajcik, Joseph; Chambers, Juanita Clay
Science education standards urge less emphasis on memorizing decontextualized scientific facts and more emphasis on students investigating the everyday world and developing deep understanding from their inquiries. This paper describes work in developing science curriculum materials that support current reform movements. It includes assumptions for designing curriculum materials, discusses curriculum design principles, presents an example project, "What Affects the Quality of Air in My Community?", and examines the degree to which implementation of the curricula has been successful. (Contains 62 references.) (WRM)
