Abstract

There is a considerable discrepancy between research on effective practice and emerging trends in elementary school science. If we are to produce the world's best prepared graduates in science and mathematics by the end of the decade, our efforts must redirect current practice, for it is early patterns of behavior which often dictate future goals and aspirations. Teachers, administrators, and teacher educators must collaborate in efforts to strengthen curriculum reorganization, utilize multi-modal instructional practice, use time efficiently, integrate science across curricular boundaries, and develop evaluation practices which accurately measure desired student outcomes. © 1992 Curry School of Education, University of Virginia.
