Teaching as a Profession.
White, Arthur L.; Klapper, Michael H.
The National Center for Science Teaching and Learning (NCSTL) located at The Ohio State University conducts research on factors that while influencing the teaching and learning of science are generally outside teacher control. This NCSTL digest deals with the professional status and responsibility of science teachers in schools. While giving lip-service to teaching as a profession, few have been willing to establish the work environment that would promote and sustain the professional teacher. In this digest, projects of the NCSTL are described that explore the facets of science teacher responsibilities; the barriers that discourage and the resources that contribute to teacher professionalism.
