Enseignement des Sciences STS: Pour unifier les buts de l'enseignement des sciences. (STS Sciences Education: Unifying the Goals of Science Education).
This monograph provides a comprehensive description of the science technology, and society (STS) movement in science education. The STS approach strives to broaden the scope of science education by integrating into the science program accurate presentations of the nature of science, the nature of technology, and interactions of science and technology with each other and with society. The STS approach is intended to serve the needs of students who will continue to study and working the sciences, as well as the total population of students who will be citizens of the 21st century. Chapter titles include the following: (1) "Advantages of the STS Concept"; (2) "Kinds of STS Courses"; (3) "Curriculum Emphases"; (4) "Science Curriculum Emphasis"; (5) "Technology Curriculum Emphasis"; and (6) "Society Curriculum Emphasis." An annotated bibliography which includes categories on STS organizations, periodicals, conferences, free publications, and STS videos and films is included. (KR)
