Designs for Progress in Science Education.
Butts, David P.
This book, prepared as a part of the activities of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Silver Anniversary Year, is directed at setting forth designs for the future of science education which will benefit as equally as possible those who see science as a life-long intellectual adventure and occupation, those who commit themselves to technology, and those (everyone) in need of greater understanding of their environment and the responsiveness of the environment to human actions. Section 1 deals with pressures and influences which have effect on education in general, science education in particular, and the teaching-learning situation. Section 2 discusses the changing role of the teacher, science supervision, educational objectives, designs for instructional programs, and science teacher education. Section 3 discusses change as it relates to science education, and opportunities and responsibilities for science education in the future. (RS)
