The Use of CASE to Bridge the Transition between Primary and Secondary School Science in Ireland
McCormack, Lorraine
School Science Review, v98 n362 p47-54 Sep 2016
This article describes how the Cognitive Acceleration through Science Education (CASE) programme was implemented in the final year of primary school and the first year of secondary school in a number of schools in Ireland. The original CASE programme, pioneered in the 1980s, proved successful in its aim to develop the science-reasoning abilities and achievement of 12- to 14-year-old pupils in the UK. The effectiveness of the programme, delivered in the primary-secondary school transition context, is reported in this article.
