Culturalizing Science Instruction: What Is It, What Does It Look Like and Why Do We Need It?
Parsons, Eileen Carlton
Journal of Science Teacher Education, v11 n3 p207-19 Aug 2000
Introduces the notion of culturalizing science instruction--making the values enacted in science teaching and the resulting contexts explicit. In contrast to the possibility of value-free instruction implied in the philosophy level of Baptiste's typology, a premise of culturalizing science instruction is that curriculum is taught in a way that corresponds to a set of cultural values.
