SUMMARY I have described the history of the SCIS project and nine strategies that were employed consciously and consistently to guide the curriculum development activities. The overall approach was pragmatic, with classroom trials and field experience playing the key role in decision making. At the same time, however, the original program design and the responses to the classroom trials were shaped by a conceptual framework of science and an inquiryoriented educational philosophy that determine the character of the SCIS program.

This commitment to the integral nature of science and how one learned it was the vision of the entire SCIS team under Bob's thoughtful leadership. Prior to and early in the development of SCIS, Bob's research (see chapter 4) on how to effectively construct the interaction between a teacher and a classroom full of learners resulted in the commitment to guided student experiences rather than a textbook as the basis of the program. The concurrent development of the LEARNING CYCLE as the conceptual organizer for structuring the interaction between the teacher and a whole classroom of learners provided the approach needed to relate the guided student experiences to the ongoing intellectual and social development of each learner.

These classes were visited regularly by the unit's developers and also by other staff members who observed the teaching, occasionally spoke to children if this did not interfere with the teacher's work, and conferred with the teacher concerning any questions the teacher might have. Reports of the observations were filed after the visits and ultimately served as source material for revision of the unit. Individual conferences, feedback meetings, and feedback questionnaires enabled teachers to communicate th~ir reactions to the developers.
