This brief distills the research on science learning to inform a common vision of science instruction and to describe the extent to which K-12 science education currently reflects this vision. A final section on implications for policy makers and science education practitioners describes actions that could integrate the findings from research into science education. The methodologies of the large scale national studies referenced in this brief are appended. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
