Of 'Knowing Science' and of 'Doing Science': A Reaffirmation of the Tacit and the Affective in Science and Science Education.
Woolnough, Brian E.
Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, v1 n3 p255-70 Jul 2001
Stresses a different non-traditional model of science: the looseness of the knowledge held, the idiosyncratic methods by which it is obtained, and the personal way in which it is used to solve problems. Further stresses the importance of tacit knowledge and the affective driving force. Argues for the inclusion of authentic science in school science. (Author/MM)
