Wilson, Judi
Journal of Staff Development, v18 n4 p6-10 Fall 1997
A California program makes science real for elementary teachers by linking them with retired scientists who share their experience and knowledge of science. Teaching Opportunities for Partners in Science (TOPS) recruits, trains, and supports the scientists, and the scientists plan and deliver lessons to students and staff. The paper notes six important lessons learned by TOPS schools. (SM)
