Turning Challenges into Opportunities in Science Education in Rural Communities.
Amaral, Olga; Garrison, Leslie
Rural Educator, v23 n2 p1-6 Win 2001
By focusing on advantages inherent in what are typically considered disadvantages for rural schools, 14 rural, southern California school districts cooperated in implementing a successful inquiry-based elementary science program. Isolation and low population density resulted in a stable teaching force familiar with the community, and the area's low income facilitated grant writing. Staff development issues are discussed. (TD)
