Abstract

The trends in high school science teaching may be grouped under the headings curriculum, teacher training, and methods of teaching. Although no one is likely to object to this grouping, there are undoubtedly many individuals who will object to the following statement of trends. This is true because it is human to emphasize those educational trends which seem to be going in what the prognosticator believes is a sensible direction. Curriculum trends of the last 100 years have resulted in four reasonably well standardized courses in present-day high schools. From the ninth through the twelfth grade these courses are general science, biology, physics, and chemistry. In the following discussion it is assumed that the reader has a reasonably good understanding of the past trends and present content of these courses. With this background in mind, we can consider the following general curriculum trends.
