Improving Science Achievement through Changes in Education Policy
Owens, Tara M.
Science Educator, v18 n2 p49-55 Fall 2009
Concerns over science education in the United States continue to grow due to the increasing global demands and competitiveness for careers in science and technology. This author contends that educators in the United States must look for ways to increase science proficiency and overall science literacy. Research about how students learn science should be used to develop teaching strategies that facilitate student learning. With better teaching methods and improvements in science instruction, students will develop deeper understanding of science concepts, which should translate into better performance on assessments.
