1981 AETS Yearbook: Improving Practices in Middle School Science.
Ochs, V. Daniel, Ed.
The theme of the eighth yearbook of the Association for the Education of Teachers in Science (AETS) involves the improvement of instructional practices in science at the middle school level. An initial chapter provides an operational definition of the middle school. Five chapters follow which provide information on various sources of educational objectives for middle school science. One chapter outlines the development of programs in middle school science. The last three chapters describe the improvement of practices in middle school science teacher preparation, in in-service training for middle school science teachers, and reactions from the field regarding the improvement of practices in middle school science.
