Interdisciplinary Science Education, Report of a Conference.
The Science Teacher, v37 n8 Nov 70 (Supplement)
This report contains the three position papers presented at a conference on interdisciplinary science education as well as edited transcripts of some of the discussion. The position papers state the necessity for such courses, describe a particular college level course for non-science majors, and present a theoretical account of an attempt to classify all knowledge in a single pattern. The excerpted discussion episodes deal with problems of definition, of recognizing the characteristics of interdisciplinary teaching, of implementation of secondary school or college levels, and of tactics to be used: whether to modify existing conditions or state de novo. Discussion group reports on teacher education, task force models, and the breadth of unity are included. Participants' names and addresses are listed. (AL)
