Yarden, Anat; Falk, Hedda; Federico-Agraso, Marta; Jimenez-Aleixandre, Maria Pilar; Norris, Stephen P.; Phillips, Linda M.
Research in Science Education, v39 n3 p391-395 May 2009
In her commentary Danielle J. Ford mainly focused on three issues that highlight the promises and challenges for the use of Adapted Primary Literature (APL) in science curricula: the possible contribution of APL to authentic experiences in secondary schools, implementation issues of APL including the support required for the teachers, and the possibilities to extend the use of APL to younger and older students. In this rejoinder, we first offer some general comments on Ford's commentary. Then we offer more specific comments on two areas of her response, authenticity and the support for teachers.
