Applying Philosophical Analysis to Science Teaching: Strategies for Inservice Work With Teachers.
Russell, Thomas L.
This study sought to identify and elaborate significant strategic elements in the process of assisting science teachers in the application of philosophical analysis to their teaching, and in the modification of their teaching according to the results of analysis. The research is based on case studies of work with teachers, individually and in small groups. The basic data for the study were tape recordings of classroom lessons and of teachers' deliberations in the analysis of teaching and the design and evaluation of alternative teaching strategies. Analyses of the data confirmed that teachers were willing to examine their methods of teaching, in a nonevaluative setting. Discussions of how the teachers reacted to analysis of their teaching and how they used these analyses to alter their teaching are given. (MH)
