The Impact of Teachers and Their Science Teaching on Students' "Science Interest": A Four-Year Study
Logan, Marianne R.; Skamp, Keith R.
International Journal of Science Education, v35 n17 p2879-2904 2013
There is a crisis in school science in Australia and this may be related to insufficient students developing an interest in science. This extended study looked at changes in 14 students' interest in science as they moved through junior secondary school into Year 10. Although the majority of these students still had an interest in science in Year 10, it had fluctuated for most students from year to year. The presence or absence of simple, but effective, teaching practices, identified by these students, seems to suggest one way to retain or improve situational and, it would appear, in several cases, personal interest.
