New Trends in Biology Teaching. Volume II.
The papers presented in this second volume were either written specially for it, or were published in leading biology teaching periodicals of the world in 1966 and 1967. The first section deals with the principles of biology teaching, its purpose, its implication in everyday life, and the social responsibilities of its teachers. The second section is concerned with individual disciplines, such as biochemistry, cybernetics, taxonomy, systematics, etc. Several articles are then devoted to methods and techniques, providing hints and suggestions regarding practical help in field and classroom work, teaching models, audio visual aids, films, new prospects in programed instruction, and examinations. The last section of papers presents critical studies of successful modern biology teaching experiments. A documentary section is appended, which includes a list of addresses of education associations and institutes which can supply teachers with equipment and/or information on request. The papers are in English or French. The papers in English provide a summary in French and Spanish; papers in French provide summaries in English and Spanish. (Author/JY)
