Frontiers In Physical Science, William R. Savage Jan 1968

Frontiers In Physical Science, William R. Savage

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

With the fast pace and rapid development of physical science, it is possible for the student to believe that no new problems remain which will require his attention. One may come to the conclusion that no challenging problems remain or that the challenges of today will be solved tomorrow. It is important to regard physical science as a human endeavor with a .future and broad scope. The frontiers exist and are easily described and recognized in all areas.

Early Ontogenesis In Chickens - Some Quantitative Measurements, Kashmiri L. Arora Jan 1968

Early Ontogenesis In Chickens - Some Quantitative Measurements, Kashmiri L. Arora

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

Developing bird's eggs have been a material of choice for the workers investigating various physical and chemical phenomena associated with development since the turn of the twentieth century. Very recently, attention has been focused on the examination and elucidation of the roles played by genetics and various extrinsic environmental factors in the development of early embryos.

"What Does Membership Mean To The Elementary Teacher?", Gordon Wagner Jan 1968

"What Does Membership Mean To The Elementary Teacher?", Gordon Wagner

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

At a recent in-service meeting in our school, an elementary teacher told me, "We have specialists in our school system who come into my classroom to teach art, music, and physical education. No one helps me teach science! What chance do I have keeping up with the changes in science when I only have a few credits in the first place?"

Book Review (Secrets Of The Nucleus, By Joseph S. Levinger) Jan 1968

Book Review (Secrets Of The Nucleus, By Joseph S. Levinger)

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

Atomic physics reaches the high school level with Secrets of the Nucleus, a Vistas of Science book by Joseph S. Levinger. Dr. Levinger, Professor of Physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, taps his years of teaching experience to communicate the excitement of nuclear research, often through simple experiments and calculations that are well within the capability of science students in today's high schools.


Science Education In The Middle Or Junior High School Grades, Robert H. Carleton Jan 1968

Science Education In The Middle Or Junior High School Grades, Robert H. Carleton

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

The following article has been condensed from a review paper which Mr. Carleton prepared as a basis for a seminar which he was invited to lead at the Third Annual International Curriculum Conference in Oxford, England, in September 1967. Mr. Carleton's editorial in this issue of TST was inspired by the program of the Curriculum Conference.

This Is What I Am!!, Milbert H. Krohn Jan 1968

This Is What I Am!!, Milbert H. Krohn

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

Getting to know science teachers about the state is somewhat of a problem for the teacher in smaller Iowa high schools. I suspect that this is a problem of communication rather than one of design by those of us in the less urban areas. When it was suggested that the Iowa Science Teachers' Journal be an avenue for establishing contact I was at first reticent about telling of myself.

Rationale For Sequence Of High School Science Courses: Argument For Change, James M. Moulton Jan 1968

Rationale For Sequence Of High School Science Courses: Argument For Change, James M. Moulton

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

In this time of rapidly evolving curricula, it is, I fear, redundant and presumptuous for a professor of biology to comment upon secondary school education. This is particularly so if he lacks experience in the problems of secondary school administration and teaching as does the present author. The problems of adequate preparation and appealing to student interests that one encounters at the college and university levels among relatively highly selected students are magnified many, many times at the high school level.


The Overhead Projector As An Aid To Laboratory Instruction, Larry L. Schenken Jan 1968

The Overhead Projector As An Aid To Laboratory Instruction, Larry L. Schenken

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

In many cases the science teacher overlooks the possibility of using the overhead projector during laboratory sessions. Projectors often are covered with dust jackets and shoved into a comer like some unwanted piece of old furniture as soon as a lab activity is started. With a bit of planning these machines may become an integral part of almost any laboratory experience.


Casmt Convention A Huge Success Jan 1968

Casmt Convention A Huge Success

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

Krockover, Chairman, Junior High Science Section, attended the annual convention of the Central Association of Science and Mathematics Teachers at the Sheraton-Jefferson Hotel in St. Louis.


Flexible-Modular Scheduling With The Slow Learner, Eugene Balk Jan 1968

Flexible-Modular Scheduling With The Slow Learner, Eugene Balk

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

At Mason City High School this year something new has been added in the biology curriculum. It is part of the New Design, better known as Phase II Flex. Approximately 160 sophomores are in the program and are known as low achievers for various reasons. One of the reasons is that they are no longer interested in school. The lack of interest may be due to the traditional school day (fifty-five minutes, six periods a day) or to the fact that the students have never achieved success in anything they have attempted in school.


Junior Academy News Jan 1968

Junior Academy News

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

We have a new IJAS constitution and a new central headquarters. All members of an appointed Iowa Junior Academy of Science Constitutional Revision Committee have been very active this summer. Dr. Robert Yager, professor of science education at The University of Iowa, was the busy chairman.


Twenty-Five Years As A Starter?, Warren Classon Jan 1968

Twenty-Five Years As A Starter?, Warren Classon

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

The National Science Teachers Association will celebrate its twenty-fifth birthday early in 1969. Your reaction to this announcement of a Silver Symposium event may be somewhat passive. A twenty-fifth birthday, like any anniversary, really has little meaning unless it includes achievement. A look at something of NSTA's history and activities should determine the significance of the event.

An Analogy Between The Cell And A Factory: A Teaching Technique, Paul A. Christiansen Jan 1968

An Analogy Between The Cell And A Factory: A Teaching Technique, Paul A. Christiansen

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

Often in a study of the cell and its cellular processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, assimilation, and growth, biology students find it difficult to acquire an adequate idea of how these living processes interact. Synthesis of these separate processes into an organized whole is even more difficult to comprehend. This paper describes an analogy between a factory and the cell that has been found effective as a classroom discussion technique to more clearly illustrate what the cell must do to maintain itself and to divide.


Open Letter From The Ists President, Richard L. Sweeney Jan 1968

Open Letter From The Ists President, Richard L. Sweeney

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

The Iowa Science Teachers Section of the Iowa Academy is growing and is becoming very active in the Science teaching of Iowa. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who in the past have made the Science Teachers Section an organization in which a science teacher can become active in local, district, and state meetings.

The Readability Of Bscs Textbooks, James C. Slaughter Jan 1968

The Readability Of Bscs Textbooks, James C. Slaughter

Iowa Science Teachers Journal

Since they appeared, the BSCS materials have been widely acclaimed by science educators, and justly so. They represent a contribution toward the movement away from the traditional teaching patterns and toward the modern approach to teaching of science, that is as inquiry.
