Incorporating True Research Opportunities into High School Curriculum: A Research and Design Course
School Science and Mathematics, v109 n7 p369-370 Nov 2009
Field research offers students true scientific practice opportunities and experiences that cannot always be achieved in the classroom. Though research suggests the importance of incorporating field-based research into science curriculum, classroom constraints make it difficult to incorporate true research opportunities into general science courses. This article focuses on the value of incorporating a field based research course offered to all students in science curriculum.
