Abstract

Science teachers generally consider teaching the scientific method as one of their chief objectives in a general course. But too often after setting up this objective they leave it. The most widely used textbook of zoology in the Midwest is Hegner's General Zoology and yet there is not one word in this popular text on the scientific method. Two of the newest texts of zoology are Textbook of Zoology by Potter, and Animals without Backbones by Buchsbaum. These books have received much favorable comment yet Buchsbaum's does not contain one word about the scientific method and Potter's devotes about one and one-half pages to it. The high school texts of biology have made at least an effort to give the student some appreciation of the scientific method, and I feel that the high schools are again leading the way.
