A Behavioral Content Analysis of Teacher's Editions of Selected Junior High School Inquiry Science Curricula.
LaDuca, Anthony
The purpose of this study was to identify the teaching models contained in teacher's editions of selected junior high school inquiry science materials. The methodology employed a systematic content analysis of the teacher's editions using an instrument of the investigator's design. The sample consisted of the commercially published teacher's editions from the following curricula: (1)Earth Science Curriculum Project (ESCP); (2) Interaction of Man and the Biosphere (IMB); (3) Interaction of Matter and Energy (IME); (4) Intermediate Science Curriculum Study (ISCS); and (5) Introductory Physical Science (IPS). As a result of the analysis, the editions were divided into three groups identified as: the Lecture/Discussion Model, the Inquiry Discussion Model, and the Process Management Model. The latter two seem appropriate to the accomplishment of inquiry objectives, while the first shows serious limitations. (Author/RH)
