A Study of the Research Priorities As Perceived by Elementary and Secondary School Science Personnel.
White, Arthur L.; And Others
This report briefly reviews the rationale for and history of a cooperative effort of the National Association for Research in Science Teaching and the National Science Teachers Association to increase the influence of classroom science teachers on science education research and to improve teachers' perception of the relevance of science education research. Processes, initial results, and planned future activities and procedures are reported that relate to obtaining input from teachers to identify relevant research questions related to classroom practice. An analysis of data collected from questionnaires submitted to science teacher personnel (N=45) is presented that summarizes research needs of secondary and of elementary science teaching personnel.
