STL Teaching--Immediate and Longitudinal Influence on Students' Learning.
This paper illustrates the effectiveness of two models of STL teaching in the classroom. The teaching of scientific and technological literacy for all (STL) involves increasing the relevance of teaching through relating it to local issues or concerns and incorporating values education. STL supplementary teaching materials were defined as materials which were social issue based, student centered, decision- making, and/or problem-solving units, within curriculum topics. Altogether, 45 teachers and 1,163 students were involved in different studies over the period 1997-2001. It was found that the major factor illustrating teachers' ownership of teaching STL was their involvement in the process of creating supplementary teaching materials, described through the longitudinal classroom observation study.
