Reflections on Teachers' In-Service Training while Introducing a New Teaching Unit on Industrial Chemistry to the Chemistry Curriculum in Israeli High Schools.
Kesner, Miri; Hofstein, Avi; Ben-Zvi, Ruth
This paper reports on part of a five-year research study on the implementation of new industrial chemistry case studies into the curriculum for students majoring in chemistry in Israeli high schools. The purpose of the study was to obtain information on teachers' formal education in industrial chemistry and their attitudes toward teaching this subject. The study also addresses the expectations of the teachers from inservice training and its contribution to their needs. The data for this study consist of informational and attitude questionnaires which were followed by interviews. Findings suggest that the traditional training of chemistry teachers hardly touches on the subject of industrial chemistry and that many teachers had taken no industrial chemistry courses or visited a chemical plant prior to inservice training.
