Images of Nature of Science in Middle Grade Science Trade Books.
Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad
New Advocate, v15 n2 p121-27 Spr 2002
Suggests that the prevalent and persistent nature of secondary school students' naive "nature of science" (NOS) views could be largely attributed to the way science is represented in science textbooks and taught in classrooms. Examines images of NOS presented in middle-grade science trade books. Concludes that student experiences with such books contribute to their development of naive ideas about NOS. (SG)
