Primary Science: Professional Learning and Curriculum Development in Northern Tasmania
Kenny, John; Colvill, Marj
Teaching Science, v54 n1 p35-38 Mar 2008
This paper reports on the results of a survey of primary teachers who attended a series of three 1/2 day workshops that focused on primary science activities concerned with two key outcome areas from the Tasmanian Essential Learnings curriculum: "Investigating the Natural and Constructed World" and "Inquiry." The workshops provided teachers with ideas and resources to assist them to involve their students in conducting their own science inquiries. One session was facilitated by national "CREST" (Creativity in Science and Technology) personnel. (Contains 7 tables.)
