An Analysis of the Secondary School Science Curriculum and Directions for Action in the 1980's. 1982 AETS Yearbook.
Staver, John R., Ed.
The 1982 Yearbook of the Association for the Education of Teachers in Science (AETS) is the second in a series of three AETS yearbooks in which Ralph Tyler's 1949 curriculum rationale is used to analyze science curriculum. This publication is focused on the secondary school science curriculum (the 1981 yearbook was concerned with teaching science to middle school students). The 1982 Yearbook is divided into three major sections. Section I contains an examination of Tyler's model as it relates to the current status of science education, which is also discussed in this section. Section II contains six chapters whose authors have used Tyler's model to examine specific aspects of the science curriculum: scientific literacy, problem solving, student motivation, social and political factors affecting the science curriculum, and changing instructional practice, as well as implications for continuing education for science educators.
