Science and math teaching.
RESEARCH AND SCIENCE. Eugene de Silva and Jonathan Wallace *,
Walters Stale Community College, Morristown, Tennessee, and Rogersvillle
Middle School. Hawkins County. Tennessee. The importance of including
research projects in science teaching is discussed in this presentation.
Previous findings related to the objectives of students following
science courses, mainly chemistry and physics, are highlighted during
this presentation as the basis and the reason to support the
introduction of research in classroom teaching. E. de Silva's
published work on successful introduction of research in physics and
chemistry classes arc presented here with further analysis of ways to
include research in science teaching in order to introduce changes to
traditional teaching methods. The presentation also includes a suggested
analysis of the syllabus and ways to combine it with research components
to cover different assessment methods in the classroom.
