A Proposal for a Collaborative Australian Secondary Science Program.
Hackling, Mark; Goodrum, Denis; Deshon, Fred
The high expectations for scientific literacy for all students demands a certain quality of science education in lower secondary education. This program focuses on supporting teachers in implementing this new curriculum. There are three interconnecting components of the program: (1) curriculum resources; (2) professional development; and (3) participative inquiry due to the difficult and complex structure of the teacher change process.
