Is It Finally Time To Implement "Curriculum S"?
Hake, Richard R.
This document describes the need for improved physics education of K-12 teachers and suggests "Curriculum S" as a possible partial solution. "Curriculum S" for synthesis intends to serve students who want to study physics as background for something other than physics research. The document presents some models of "Curriculum S" programs proposed at the Princeton Conference in December, 1963. The need for general reform of P-16 education is also discussed with examples of programs. (KHR)
