Yurumezoglu, Kemal; Oguz, Ayse
Online Submission, Journal of Universite ve Toplum v8 n1
The purpose of this study was to create a conceptual awareness in science education for accurate observation of what is happening around us. To correctly understand the conceptual framework of the curriculum currently being implemented and to make us aware of our need to know how to put this framework into practice will serve as a guide for carrying out programs and for improving them. In this context answers are being sought to the questions; what kind of contents, what kind of teacher, what kind of teaching, and, what kind of evaluation, are necessary for the implementation of a constructivist approach that is appropriate for teaching science lessons in our educational culture. Students in primary schools and teachers of the future in the education faculty are, both, seeking answers to these questions with classroom experiences from the viewpoint of student and teacher. As a result educational programs that are similar to our education and that are in place in many countries throughout the world have acquired integrated concepts and terminology. At the conclusion of the study a framework was prepared that will proceed from the "native language integrated with scientific language is the basis of science culture" approach in science educational activities, and will create the foundation of a collective shared approach in the perception of the conceptual contents and procedures of new programs.
