Brinckerhoff, Richard F., Ed.; Yager, Robert E., Ed.
This conference was convened to identify the most important problems and opportunities facing science teaching in secondary schools and to suggest the most practical means of addressing them. The report highlights issues involving science and technology education which were addressed at the conference. Information is presented in three major sections which are entitled: (1) perspectives (providing an overview of the conference's objectives, participant composition, and conclusions); (2) topics of discussion (synthesizing ideas on classroom reform, science education's goals, science curriculum, instructional strategies, evaluation, role of science supervisors, preparation of science teachers, and priorities for action); and (3) new directions (reflecting on the conference's mission and accomplishments). Also included are listings of the conference's steering committee, consultants, and participants and a bibliographic listing of references associated with the theme of science and technology education.
