Summary

This booklet is the sixth of a series of 16 booklets that together describe and present findings for a study which involved field observations and a survey of science teaching and learning in American pulic schools during the school year 1976-77. The study was undertaken to provide the National Science Foundation with a portrayal of current conditions in K-12 science classrooms to help make the Foundation's programs of support for science education consistent with national needs. Eleven high schools and their feeder schools were selected to provide a diverse and balanced group of case study sites. One field researcher was assigned to each site and instructed to find out what was happening and what was felt important in science (including mathematics and social science) programs. The case study report from the "Urbanville" site - a metropolitan community of the Pacific Northwest - is contained in this booklet. (MN)
