Toward Effective Teaching and Learning: Stories of Primary Schools' Environmental Science Interest and Action
Gough, Annette; Sharpley, Brian
Educational Action Research, v13 n2 p191-212 Jun 2005
This article provides some stories of primary school teachers' and students' experiences of implementing new science teaching and learning strategies through an action research process that have also led to more environmental education occurring in the schools' curriculum. The stories have been constructed from the coordinators' journals, observations and interviews with the teachers and students in the schools. The teachers in the schools are consciously engaged in an action research-based model of curriculum change in science teaching and learning. The stories also acknowledge the critiques of critical theory in environmental education and the possibilities for a socially critical approach in environmental education within a context of the limited opportunities for both science and environmental education in primary schools. (Contains 2 tables, 1 figure and 4 notes.)
