Interdisciplinary Approaches to Science Education.
McGinnis, Jane
This paper addresses the problem of an inadequate science teaching approach at a time when students need to be familiar with, and be able to understand, global problems and personal problems delving into complex, interrelated issues based on the science of a living universe. This report focuses on research about the problems in science education, the dilemma today and for the future in science education, program attempts in science education, and what educators can do to enhance science curricula. Chapters cover: (1) an introduction to the problem under study; (2) a literature review; (3) a brief overview of implemented programs emphasizing strengths and wesknesses; (4) positive approaches and recommendations to science education for curriculum enhancement; and (5) summary and conclusions. An appendix includes two model science activities: "Making Rounds with Dr. Semmelweis," and "The Problem of Gierer and Schramm." A list of 37 references is included. (CW)
