Formula for Success According to TIMSS or the Subliminal Decay of Jurisdictional Educultural Integrity?
Puk, Tom
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v45 n3 p225-38 Fall 1999
Comparison of teaching practices of grade 7-8 science teachers in Ontario, Alberta, and Singapore found an implicit "formula for success" related to high scores on the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Recent Ontario curriculum guidelines aimed at boosting TIMSS scores ignore provincial educational values that support an inquiry approach to learning. Contains 45 references. (Author/SV)
