Towards Coherence in Science Instruction: A Framework for Science Literacy


"This report details a conceptual framework for building science literacy through utilizing the PROM/SE 8+1 fundamental science concepts. One of the most powerful ideas underlying science is that a small number of simple laws guide the behavior of the natural world. Yet, science is not taught this way in the schools. The report explores how students can be taught these laws utilizing the 8+1 framework and then shown how to apply these in different situations to gain understanding and new insight into natural systems."
