Chemistry. Focus on Excellence, Volume 3, Number 2.
Penick, John E., Ed.; Krajcik, Joseph, Ed.
Eight examples of innovative and outstanding chemistry programs are described. These programs were selected using state criteria and at least four independent reviewers. While Project Synthesis offered a desired state, these examples of excellence provided views of what is already a reality. Included are the goals of an exemplary science program and the criteria for excellence. Programs described are: (1) "Chemistry for All"; (2) "Chemistry-Biochemistry"; (3) "Chemical Concepts Through Investigation"; (4) "High School Chemistry--An Equilibrium"; (5) "Using High-Interest Activities"; (6) "Chemistry: Three Courses, Five Levels"; (7) "Individualized Chemistry"; and (8) "Humor in Chemistry." An analysis of exemplars in chemistry is presented. (KR)
