The announcement below was forwarded to me today via e-mail.
PHYSICS/CHEMISTRY FIELD TEST OPPORTUNITY 2005-2006
The Center for Science Education (CSE), one of the nationís premier innovators of science curricula, is now accepting applications from high school teachers interested in field testing a new ninth or tenth grade physics/chemistry curriculum for the 2005-2006 school year.
This curriculum is one semester of physics for the fall of 2005, and one semester of chemistry for the spring of 2006. Classrooms that teach physics and chemistry concepts in grade nine or ten are welcome to participate in this field test. A Teacher Guide, a book for each student, tests, and worksheets are provided. Only equipment and consumables that are generally available in high school are needed.
The curriculum, Foundation Science, is being developed by the Center for Science Education (CSE), a part of Education Development Center (EDC), an international, nonprofit organization that conducts research and creates materials and programs to advance learning and promote health. EDC has been working in all areas of education since 1958. Funding for Foundation Science is being provided by the National Science Foundation; and the Principal Investigator, Dr. Jacqueline S. Miller, is a scientist who also led the team that produced the Insights in Biology curriculum.
