Teaching toward a More Scientifically Literate Society
LoGiudici, Raymond; Ende, Fred
Science Scope, v33 n9 p58-63 Jul 2010
To teach scientific literacy to eighth graders, the authors created a yearlong project that emphasizes the various components and skills required to be a scientifically literate citizen. This project is broken into four separate components: skeptical thinking (pseudoscience), current-event article analysis, fiction and nonfiction literature, and long-term observations (observing your world). (Contains 4 figures and 1 online resource.)
