The World of Science is a general science reader aimed mainly at adult learners. The book is intended for use by learners, with help from facilitators where necessary. It is suggested that the words at the beginning of each chapter be read to students before starting work on the chapter. Students or facilitators might wish to tape record word pronunciations or other material from this book. The world of science is so vast that deciding what to include in a book such as this is not easy. There is information here about science and its many branches. There are also some hands-on activities and pieces of information that readers will find helpful. The book includes a glossary and index.
This is a collection of stories by members of Seniors' Writing Circles and Fundamental Level Students, College of New Caledonia, Prince George, British Columbia. The Prince George Seniors' Writing Circles began in September 1996 as the result of a cost-shared government grant. Behind the walls of the many senior residences and activity centres in Prince George, is a wealth of untapped historical experience. This is the first time these seniors have had the opportunity to join these intellectually stimulating circles through which they have developed and used the literacy skills necessary to put their experiences on paper.
It took great courage and determination for all the authors in this book to overcome feelings of "I can't write...I have nothing of importance to say". Through sharing ideas and experiences orally, these feelings changed. The writing began! It will continue!
