Gallagher, James J.
The sixth paper in the science series of research reviews produced for the Science and Mathematics Education Information Analysis Center concerns research in science education at the elementary school level published in 1968-69. The following topics are reviewed: Effects of instruction in new elementary science programs (Science - A Process Approach, SCIS, ESS); the impact of instruction at pre-school and primary school levels and in intermediate grades; developmental studies without particular instructional programs; teacher education; teacher behavior and characteristics; and instrument development for subsequent research. Eight miscellaneous studies are also reported. Summarizing conclusions are made at the end of each section, and some general conclusions, mainly concerned with weaknesses of design, analysis and reporting of research are made. The bibliography contains 124 citations, mainly journal articles and unpublished doctoral dissertations. (AL)
