In-Service Education: Identifying and Responding to Concerns of Teachers of Science Curriculum Improvement Study Materials.
La Shier, William S., Jr.; And Others
This study involved the participants of a four-week, National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop who were interested in piloting the life science phase of Science Curriculum Improvement Study (SCIS) materials in six school districts in Northeast Kansas. The purpose of the study was to investigate the progress of participant usage of SCIS and to identify concerns of the participants so that help could be provided. For this purpose, a "Concerns Questionnaire" was administered to the participants before and after the workshop, and was also administered to teachers who had attended the workshop the previous year and had been using SCIS for one year. Among the results of the study were: (1) the teachers who had been using SCIS for one year were less concerned about the management of SCIS than the inexpereinced teachers; (2) the workshop participants were more concerned about management of SCIS after the workshop than before the workshop; and (3) there was no difference between the scores of the participants on the instrument "Science Teaching Attitude Scales" before and after the workshop.
