Influence of the Amount of Time Spent in Field Trip Activities on Student Attitude Toward Science and the Environment. S.S.T.A. Research Centre Report No. 49.
Ignatiuk, Gerald T.
The major objective of this study was to determine whether a relationship existed between eleventh-grade biology students' attitude toward science and environmental concepts and their exposure to field trip activities. All students in the sample were using the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) textbook, Green Version. The study was successful in establishing that such a relationship exists. Statistically significant differences in student attitude between pretest and posttest measurements after varying amounts of field work during the 15-week study period were shown. (Author/RE)
