chemistry teaching, chemistry textbooks, science teaching
A simple questionnaire was sent to Iowa's 474 teachers of high school chemistry in 1978 to determine textbook preference, degree of acceptance of self-paced instruction, popularity of the modular approach, and amount of time spent in the laboratory. The responses combined with information provided by the Department of Public Instruction revealed that the traditional approach to teaching chemistry appears to predominate in Iowa and that one particular textbook is the preference of a third of the teachers.
