Extractions: Responding to widespread concern over the prevalence of scientific illiteracy, the Center for Communication and Educational Technology (CCET) created a new middle school science curriculum. Integrated Science is a multi-year program based on the work and recommendations of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Project 2061: Science for All Americans , and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) publication Scope, Sequence and Coordination in Secondary School Science . This research, and development by CCET, are also shaping the new national science standards and state courses of study. School systems in several states are adopting Integrated Science in conjunction with or to replace textbooks in order to meet the new standards. Integrated Science first introduced Integrated Science 7 during the 1991-92 school year. It has since added Integrated Science 8 and Integrated Science 6 . In seven years the project has grown from 97 enrolled teachers in Alabama to over 1400 enrolled teachers in 15 states and Québec, Canada, and currently serves more than 160,000 middle school students. (CCET, part of and supported by the University of Alabama, is very pleased with the response it has been receiving.)

Extractions: HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE It is clear that teen sexual activity outside of marriage can have devastating effects for the teens themselves their families, and therefore, society. Unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases have certainly affected Alabama teens, resulting in tremendous social and economic consequences to society. May concerned Alabamians are facing the issue despite widespread opposition both locally and nationally. The focus of this opposition is the approach to sex education. When the welfare Reform Act of 1996 was signed into law, Congress appropriated $50 million each year for five years for abstinence until marriage education. The Alabama Department of Public Health immediately applied for funding and was awarded over $1 million for each of the next five years. Madison County Schools was one of twenty-five community-based organizations who received funding for abstinence only education. Proponent of the "safer sex" message are ineligible to receive funding from this grant based on the definition of "abstinence education". The goal of the Alabama abstinence Education Program is to reduce the occurrence of sexual activity among adolescents 17 years of age and younger which will subsequently reduce the pregnancy rate, the occurrence of STDÕs the rate of live births to teens, and the abortion rate. This will in turn help them to stay in school and potentially lessen the burden on the welfare system
