Secondary-Level Physical Science Teachers and Teaching in Kansas: Survey Results from the Early 1990s.
Backhus, DeWayne
A survey of all Kansas physical sciences (chemistry, general science, physical science, and physics) teachers (36 percent return rate) in the Spring of 1991 provided elements of a profile of physical sciences teachers and teaching. Findings are presented concerning teaching assignments, course enrollments, school demographics, teacher background and preparation, computers and their role in the science classroom, textbook adoptions, inclusion of field trips, laboratory safety, the "approach" to science teaching, inclusion of environmental education topics, perceptions of "academic responsibility," and background levels of confidence by teaching assignments in chemistry, physics, and physical/general science. The survey questionnaire and respondent data are appended. (Author)
