Science Education Information Reports, Research Review Series - Science Paper 2, A Summary of Research in Science Education for the Years of 1965-67, Elementary School Level.
Haney, Richard; And Others
This is one of several papers issued in cooperation with the National Association for Research in Science Teaching to analyze and synthesize research related to the teaching and learning of science completed over a two-year period. The research reviewed is grouped according to the standard categories used by the ERIC Science and Mathematics Education Information Analysis Center: Instructional procedures, teacher education, equipment and facilities, the curriculum, status of science programs, evaluation, and learning. Altogether 120 studies were reviewed. Investigations comparing the relative merits of two or more teaching methods were the most common studies on instructional procedures. Several studies on the characteristics of children and the relationship of these characteristics to science teaching were reviewed. Some of the other studies reviewed related to: various practices in the preparation of teachers, teachers' understandings of subject matter, survey of science programs, and patterns of intellectual growth, concept formation, and cognitive styles.
