The Feasibility of Teaching Science via a Socio-Historical Approach.
Agin, Michael Lawrence
The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of teaching science via a socio-historical approach utilizing selected concepts related to social and historical developments of science and selected concepts related to atomic energy. Instruction materials included textual materials developed by the investigator, a test, a series of slides, and four motion pictures. The investigator taught the unit to two different high school populations (one 107 students, the other 76 students). Mean gains for the subtest and total test were significant for both schools. Student responses indicated a majority of the students in both schools expressed a positive opinion toward the interest producing potential of the unit. (Author/RH)
