A Program for Teaching Science. The Thirty-First Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, Part I.
Craig, Gerald S.; And Others
This yearbook, prepared by a committee appointed to look at the teaching of science, makes recommendations concerning the development of science programs at all levels of education, including the teaching of science in college and science teacher education. Chapters 1 through 5 address the following topics: interpretations of what seems to be successful practices in teaching science in elementary and secondary schools; criticisms of some current practices; an analysis that shows some of the contributions to life enrichment that may be expected from the field of science; a definition of the field of science, given in terms of major principles and generalizations; and a brief interpretation of the principles of psychology that have guided the Committee in constructing its program. Chapters 6 through 9 summarize the contributions from educational research that relate to the field of science teaching. Chapters 10 through 15 carry recommendations for each of the administration units of the public school. Chapter 16 deals with rooms and equipment for science teaching; Chapter 17, with science teaching on the college level; and Chapter 18, with the education of teachers of science. (Author/CS)
