This paper explains the Head Start on Science and Communication Program (HSSCP) developed by the Laboratory of Student Success (LSS) at Temple University Center for Research in Human Development and Education (CRHDE). This program uses an inquiry approach and teaches problem solving skills to students. The program consists of a 2-week summer training period at the beginning of the program, post-training classroom surveys, in-class technical assistance, and modeling of experiments during the school year. The outcome of the study indicates that changes in teaching methods and classroom structure occurred. (Contains 13 references.) (YDS)
