Bibliography of Science Teaching in Secondary Schools. Bulletin, 1925, No. 13

The council of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, at its Cincinnati, Ohio meeting in December, 1923, authorized a special committee to make a study of the role played and to be played by science in education. That committee was organized in 1924, and the presentation of this bibliography is a product of its work. An adequate study of any subject as the place of science in education must proceed with constant reference to the existing literature. The literature of science teaching is already extensive, but it is unusually scattered, in many different forms of publication. The bibliography herewith presented has been in the process of preparation for several years as a part of a series of studies of science teaching. It includes articles bearing upon those sciences most generally taught in secondary schools. It has recently been entirely revised and checked and made to include titles up to the earlier publications of the year 1925. The expense involved in the preparation of a comprehensive, annotated bibliography is such that it was decided to publish, first, a list of titles bearing upon the teaching of the chief science subjects, which have been found to be general science, biology, chemistry, and physics. This publication represents the first portion of the work. The preparation of a critically selected, annotated bibliography for a limited number of topics in the field of science is in progress and will be published later.
