Abstract

A team of nine members assumed the responsibility for teaching 1250 students utilizing team teaching and large group instruction on an experimental basis. Students used modified versions of AAAS and IPS science curriculum materials. Modification of materials was necessary to operate effectively with laboratory groupings of 125. Heterogeneous grouping and individual progress was stressed with students working at their own rate. Physical changes included the removal of three walls to provide for a U-shaped complex. Additional laboratory supplies were also purchased due to class size. The program was closely associated with the class guide system and flexible scheduling in operation at Bettendorf Middle School. Based upon student response and evaluation, it is felt that this program presents controversial results in connection with costs involved, utilization of instructors' backgrounds, and individualization of instruction.
