Abstract

In summary, surveys conducted at the State University of Iowa have revealed the following points that lead to a single conclusion: 1) Science teachers in Iowa are generally eager to improve their courses and their teaching. 2) Science teachers desire help from the colleges in securing appropriate training in order to approach the "new" science courses. 3) New graduates of most colleges and Universities feel wholly inadequate about teaching the new courses. 4) Apparently considerable reorganization of college curricula is necessary to provide certified teachers who would be ready to teach the CBA course (and presumably the other new courses). The CBA course differs from traditional chemistry in both specific content and method. The content is organized around the main basic theme of the chemical bond and the approach is one of inquiry. These differences suggest needed changes in the training of teachers who will be involved in the teaching of the "new" chemistry.
