Children's Alternative Views: Alternative to What?
Fleer, Marilyn
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n2 p119-35 Feb 1999
Considers assumptions implicit within Western science-education research and practices. Argues that Western science underpins science teaching and that other world views are not foregrounded. Claims that the notion of "alternative views" positions knowledge construction in other cultures in ways that do not permit different world views or understandings to emerge. Also suggests that "alternative" implies alternative to Western science. Contains 61 references. (Author/WRM)
