A Summary of Research in Science Education - 1974.
Herron, J. Dudley; And Others
Following guidelines established in previous summaries of research, this review for the year 1974 portrays "the state of knowledge in science education, describes any existing trends, identifies areas which need to be researched, and provides tentative answers to persistent problems, if any seem to emerge from the research." Accordingly, research has been listed under those categories which seem most descriptive. General divisions appearing are: (1) learning; (2) education, characteristics and behaviors of teachers; (3) surveys; and (4) implications of the research reviewed. In all, 385 separate studies are cited in the bibliography, although considerably fewer are mentioned in the text. Through the use of the extensive index, however, the major thrusts of all reviewed research can be ascertained. (CP)
