Summary

This report is a policy statement for science curriculum and instruction in elementary schools. It describes a set of organizing principles that incorporate what science ought to be taught, and a learning sequence that illustrates how more "hand-on, minds-on" science can become more prevalent in our schools. Chapters included are: (1) "Introduction" (discussing the current situation in science classrooms and the frameworks for curriculum and instruction); (2) "A Conception of Science and Technology"; (3) "The Goals and Rationale"; (4) "A Framework for Curriculum" (describing the organizing concepts, attitudes, skills and topics); (5) "A Framework for Instruction" (describing assumptions about student learning, teacher role, teaching model, and teacher development); (6)"Educational Environment" (including facilities, materials, instructional technology, and classroom management); and (7) "Conclusions." Seven National Science Foundation programs for elementary schools and five exemplary science education programs in the National Diffusion Network are summarized in the appendices. (YP)
