The Development and Implementation of a Program To Promote Secondary Level Science Research Education.
Lee, Ronald R.
The insufficient educational backgrounds of secondary level science teachers and lack of student involvement in science were addressed by the implementation of a comprehensive science research program. A pretest was employed to measure the weaknesses of the science teachers at the target school. Learning strategies based upon pretest results were implemented to upgrade the skills of the science teachers. Workshops were developed to instruct the teachers in the area of science research. Results indicate a substantial improvement in the background knowledge of the science teachers. Student participation in science at the target school also improved. Included are the purpose, research and solution strategy, methodology, results, and recommendations. The pretest, the analysis of results, and a research handbook are appended. (Author/KR)
