A Guide for Local Standards-Based Science Curriculum.
Graham, Christine, Ed.; Harris, Doug, Ed.
The reason for creating this resource was to produce a booklet that was concise and reflected the character and uniqueness of Vermont schools and, at the same time, reflect the ongoing nature of the curriculum improvement process. This document was intended for schools and districts in all phases of curriculum improvement, from creation through implementation to the assessment of program effectiveness. This guide describes how to implement effectively the programs that work with the Vermont Framework. From laying out a template for the process to supplying descriptive vignettes about schools immersed in change, this guide can help schools seeking to implement meaningful curriculum reform. (ASK)
