Reflecting on purposes for learning science

Reflecting on purposes for learning science
Lorraine Spiller and Rosemary Hipkins

This report is one in a series written for the Ministry of Education in the Curriculum support for science strand of a wider project called Science in the Curriculum. It describes two case studies in which teachers were asked to think about their purposes for teaching science and the outcomes they hoped their students would achieve. The case study teachers in two secondary schools worked with a visiting researcher. As part of the process teachers were supported to trial new strategies and responses from students on the changes were sought.
