Affective science teaching
Schibeci, R. (1977) Affective science teaching. In: 3rd Annual Conference of the Western Australian Science Education Association, 20th September 1977, Secondary Teachers College, W.A pp. 44-57.
One of the chief goals of science curriculum development projects has . been to stimulate student interest in science. This is one aspect of affective science teaching.
A number of dimensions in affective science teaching can be distinguished:
1. attitudes to science (involving like vs dislike of science or scientists);
2. attitudes in science (often called “scientific attitudes”);
3. attitudes to the “attitudes in science”.
What is the role of each of these dimensions?
What emphasis should these dimensions receive in a science curriculum?
What guidance does the literature provide in these areas?
The paper will examine these issues and the possible usefulness of a taxonomy for the affective domain of science education.
