Better Science: Learning How To Teach It. Curriculum Guide 12.
Hornsby, Joseph, Comp.
This publication is the last in a series of 12 giving the recommendations that were made for a broad and balanced education program in science for young people. This guide shows that learning to teach better science starts formally with initial training, continues through an induction period, and is consolidated through a regular in-service program. This guide also enables teachers to operate successfully in the system. Included are an introduction on what this guide is about, three appendices covering typical tasks, timetables, planning and preparation, additional readings, references and seven sections. Section one considers important trends and expectations. Section two considers needs, obligations, tutor's viewpoints, probation, and induction. Section three deals with plans for action, change, issues, and treatments. Section four discusses support agencies and money. Section five deals with curriculum guides, responses to and evaluation of the Secondary Science Curriculum Review (SSCR), inservice programs, and publications related to curriculum areas. Section six discusses workshops while final thoughts are provided in section seven. (RT)
