Science for All. Research Brief
Walker, Karen
Education Partnerships, Inc.
Students need to be competent in science because of its impact on everyday decision-making, the rapid pace of change and the increasing interdependent global economy (Lawton, 2007; U.S. Department of Education, 2000; Lederman, 1998). According to the National Research Council, "Teachers of science should develop communities of science learners that reflect the intellectual rigor of scientific inquiry and the attitudes and social values conducive to science learning" (1996). The overarching goals of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the National Research Council (1996) are for every student to: (1) be scientifically literate; (2) know and understand the natural world; (3) use appropriate scientific processes and principles in making decisions; and (4) increase economic productivity.
