Many teachers seem to operate from a partial teaching model that does not adequately relate the various parts to the whole of science education. The current state of affairs is much like that of the six blind men describing an elephant. Each teacher sees in part and formulates a description of science education from that point of view. As a result, teachers often become torn between subject matter; student needs; teaching techniques; administrative, community, and governmental influences; and other concerns, all tending to fragment the approach to science education.
