A Characterisation of Practical Proposals To Teach the Philosophy of Science to Prospective Science Teachers.
Aduriz-Bravo, Agustin; Izquierdo, Merce; Estany, Anna
The philosophy of science is considered one of the important elements in the transformation of science education into the 21st century. This paper focuses on the integration of the philosophy of science into science teacher education by analyzing the theoretical framework of three didactical units. The first unit aims to teach a set of central concepts from a 20th century philosophy of science by using the detective novel Agatha Christie's "Death on the Nile." The second didactic unit illustrates the relationship between science, technology, and society which was developed by Michael Matthews. The third unit focuses on the context of values, evolution, and judgment. (Contains 34 references.) (YDS)
