Science Education Information Reports, Occasional Paper Series, Science Paper 1, Inservice Education for Teachers of Secondary School Science.
Blosser, Patricia E.
This paper is the first of a series of occasional papers to be released through the ERIC Center for Science Education designed to report to the profession on various aspects of science education. The author reviewed three document types dealing with inservice education for secondary school science teachers. These were (1) published descriptions of inservice programs, (2) evaluative reports and studies of inservice programs, (3) research studies relevant to inservice education for science teachers. The documents reviewed were all published since 1960. The reports and studies reviewed can be classified into four general groups: National Science Foundation (NSF) institute programs, locally developed programs, cooperative college-school programs, and research and/or evaluative studies. The author summarized the studies reviewed and made some recommendations on the topics of (1) local inservice programs, (2) teacher attitudes, behaviors, and characteristics, (3) areas of needed research, and (4) research designs and evaluation.
