Abstract

Fellow teachers and scientists, I am very glad to present to this group the work that has been done so far by the General Science Production Committee in the building of a state course of study for the State of Iowa. The members of the production committee are Mr. Dean C. Stroud of Amos Hiatt Junior High School in Des Moines, who is the writer, Mr. Don L. Hempstead of Frank L. Smart Intermediate School of Davenport, Mr. W. Gjerde of Iowa State Teachers College at Cedar Falls and Mr. Ralph A. Shalla of Keokuk Junior High School at Keokuk, Iowa. The committee has had three meetings to date. At the first meeting suitable aims were formulated by the committee, aims that could be taught in a general science course. Naturally the group was not satisfied with these aims and they were revised several times until now they stand quite well in our opinion. These aims will be read later with comments as to why they were chosen and written as such.
