Reflections on Science Education. 1976 AETS Yearbook.
Capie, William, Ed.; Fox, Fred W., Ed.
This publication, the third in a yearly series, follows the intent of previous editions in which rapid changes in the field of science teacher education were assessed. Accordingly, 14 contributed articles appearing in this volume are grouped under the following headings: (1) The Mission of Science Education, (2) The People of Science Teaching, and (3) Teacher Training. The mission of science section is devoted to a study of science education on the elementary and secondary school levels. Piagetian theory, its application to the teaching of science, and the importance of self-actualization for both students and teachers, comprise the second main division of the publication. Six articles propose ideas concerning teacher preparatory and inservice education in the section devoted to developments in teacher training. (CP)
