New Trends in Biology Teaching, Volume III.
In this third volume of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations's (UNESCO) series on "New Trends in Biology Teaching," a total of 32 papers (mostly published during the period from 1967 to 1970 in leading biology-teaching periodicals of the world) is compiled for the purpose of promoting information exchange. The papers are written in English, French, or Spanish and accompanied by a summary. The variety of themes is stressed with a range from a report on very easy exercises to a report on the use of a computer in the meiosis study. The papers are intended mainly for university scientists, science teacher educators, and pre- and inservice secondary school teachers, to help them in the task of keeping abreast of the rapid developments in curricula, syllabuses, methods, and materials for biology teaching. The articles are grouped into the following sections: general subjects, individual disciplines, educational methods and techniques, and local developments. Emphases are placed on the introduction of active teaching methods and integrated teaching materials which are of particular use to developing countries. Included in the appendices are bibliographies of publications, names of general directories, lists of professional associations and institutions, and summaries of biology education activities in diverse countries.
