The Nature of Scientific Observation.
Hodson, D.
School Science Review, v68 n242 p17-29 Sep 1986
Reexamines the traditional role of observation in science and science education. Proposes that since observation is based on some view of the world, it is not innocent and unbiased, but theory-dependent. Discusses possible implications for the science curriculum when reconsidering the role and status of observation in science. (TW)
