Blosser, Patricia E.
Four science education fact sheets are presented and focus on: (1) creationism vs. evolution; (2) science careers; (3) science activities for special students; and (4) the role of the laboratory in science teaching. The first fact sheet was prepared to assist teachers, curriculum coordinators, and others in dealing with the teaching of evolution vs. creationism by providing a bibliography of documents and journal articles found in the ERIC data base. The second fact sheet was designed to provide users with information about terms they may use in searching ERIC and to provide a listing of documents and journal articles obtained from an ERIC search using the descriptor "Science Activities" in combination with descriptors related to special students. The last fact sheet focuses on various aspects of the role of the laboratory in science instruction, including what literature is available in ERIC and an overview of the research on the use of science laboratories.
