Implicit versus Explicit Nature of Science Instruction: An Explicit Response to Palmquist and Finley.
Bell, Randy L.; Lederman, Norman G.; Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v35 n9 p1057-61 Nov 1998
Argues that a previous study of preservice teachers' beliefs about the nature of science (NOS) was interpretively and methodologically faulty. Contests the finding that teachers learned the NOS through implicit instruction, and questions the methodology leading to the assertion that teachers intended to include NOS instruction in their lessons. Criticizes the previous study's lack of comprehensive treatment of pre-existing literature. (WRM)
