A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Increasing Opportunities for Student Learning
Keller, Thomas E.; Pearson, Greg
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v71 n5 p12-18 Feb 2012
In this article, the authors introduce engineering and technology teachers to the process that led to the National Research Council's framework for K-12 science education and some of its content and delve into the dimensions of the framework that should be of most interest to engineering and technology teachers. The framework articulates a vision for science education, identifies three dimensions that bound instruction, and offers thoughts on implementation. The authors conclude by outlining their ideas for possible next steps teachers can take to improve instruction, taking the framework into consideration.
