Science Education and the Commonplaces of Science.
Helms, Jenifer V.; Carlone, Heidi B.
Science Education, v83 n2 p233-45 Mar 1999
Proposes four formulations of the commonplaces of science based on distinct views of the nature of science, and explores the consequences of each. Argues that although each formulation has strengths, some commonplaces prove more comprehensive than others in capturing the essence of science for the purposes of developing curriculum, educating science teachers, and conducting science-education research. Contains 55 references. (Author/WRM)
