The Hidden Curriculum within the Teaching of Science and Its Relationship to Current Science Education Goals.
Cummins, Catherine L.; And Others
Many science educators have called attention to the need for teachers to prepare all types of students for a rapidly changing, technological world. Curriculum theorists have called for changes in a hidden curriculum of science they described as class specific and presenting science as a consensus arrived at by positivistic methods. This paper discusses the hidden curriculum in science education, current goals of science education, and suggestions for addressing the hidden curriculum. A portion of this paper discusses the place of science, technology and society curricula. A list of 68 references is included. (CW)
