The Missing Context in Science Education: Science.
Lemke, J. L.
Most conventional school science curricula and the teaching practices that implement them offer students no firsthand contact with working science. This paper seeks to answer the following questions: (1) How can "school science" claim to offer a basis for education in or about science at all? (2) What is the status of this claim in relation to contemporary scholarship about the nature of science and to reasonable alternative approaches to science education? (PR)
