Case Studies in Science Education, Booklet XII: Findings I.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Center for Instructional Research and Curriculum Evaluation.
This booklet is the thirteenth of a series of 16 booklets that together describe and present findings for a study which involved field observations and a survey of science teaching and learning in American public schools during the school year 1976-77. The study was undertaken to provide the National Science Foundation with a portrayal of current conditions in K-12 science classrooms to help make the Foundation's programs of support for science education consistent with national needs. Eleven high schools and their feeder schools were selected to provide a diverse and balanced group of case study sites. One field researcher was assigned to each site and instructed to find out what was happening and what was felt important in science (including mathematics and social science) programs. Findings from the case studies which pertain to the various aims of science education, the K-12 curriculum, and the question of pluralism and uniformity in science education are presented in this booklet.
