[Extract] In the spring of 2005 I presented a paper at the Manitoba Education Research Forum in Brandon. The paper focused on a Yukon school's journey in improving the quality of science instruction as a collaborative effort among teachers with the support of senior administration. In brief, this school's development process included (1) a preliminary analysis of where the school was at in terms of science curriculum delivery; which led to (2) the implementation of strategies to improve science delivery; (3) a re-evaluation to determine the effectiveness of the strategies implemented; and, finally, (4) ongoing strategies to further improve and sustain the science development. Maurice Saltel, the principal at Arborg Early Middle Years School was in attendance at this session and after the presentation asked if I would be willing to conduct a similar analysis of science delivery at his school. I was glad to assist in this process as Kindergarten to Grade 8 science has been the focus of my research and development work as a professor in science education in New Zealand, Australia and, more recently, Canada for the past two decades.
