Scientific Literacy: a bibliographical review  [PDF]
Lúcia Helena Sasseron,Anna Maria Pessoa de Carvalho
Investiga??es em Ensino de Ciências , 2011,
Abstract: We present a bibliographical review about Scientific Literacy building from a historical perspective to understand how this theme was discussed through years. Then, we attempted to identify which skills authors point as necessary to be developed in order to classify someone as scientific literate. These ideas are more explored in formal educational contexts. And to conclude, we identified Structural Axes of Scientific Literacy: proposal lines built from literature analyses that are considered to design teaching and learning sequences that aimed prompt opportunities to development of Scientific Literacy among students.
New Concept of Teaching Scientific French
Qing-lu ZHANG
Canadian Social Science , 2010,
Abstract: The paper investigates the relationship between the French for common usages and the French for special usages, stating the characteristics and teaching methodologies of the scientific French. The paper first points out the existing problems concerning the original teaching objectives, teaching methods, and teaching materials, and then presents a new concept to improve the Scientific French Teaching. It is proposed in the paper that the key to the problem relies on redefining the scientific French. Keywords: Scientific French; French teaching; French for common usage; French for special usage Résumé: Cet article étudie les relations entre le fran ais sur objectif général et le fran ais sur objectif spécial et décrit les caractéristiques du fran aise scientifique, ainsi que les approches d'enseignement. Après avoir désigné les problèmes existants dans les objectifs pédagogiques originaux, dans les approches d'enseignement et dans les matériaux, l'auteur propose de nouvelles approches de l'amélioration de l'enseignement du fran ais scientifique. Selon cet article, le coeur du problème consiste à définir le connotation du fran ais scientifique.

Strategies for Developing Teachers\' Scientific Skills towards a Resourceful Teaching of Primary Science
KO Aluko, RA Aluko
African Research Review , 2008,
Abstract: The quality and performance of teachers are always considered as determining factors for the success of educational system of a nation. Teachers in the primary schools should be well equipped to meet the challenges of teaching primary science effectively in our schools so that the students can use their developing scientific knowledge, skills, and attitudes to further develop their investigative skills and attitudes. It is therefore imperative to develop scientific skills among our teachers for a resourceful teaching of primary school science. This paper discussed the strategies for developing teachers' scientific skills in lesson preparation and after lesson delivery so as to create positive attitudinal outcomes and conditions necessary for inculcating scientific skills into the pupils. These will place the teachers in a better and more resourceful position to teach science at the primary school level. African Research Review Vol. 2 (3) 2008: pp. 160-172

Abstract: The students at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Nis have specific demands for English. They have a desire to publish medical articles in respected journals, they want to participate in international conferences and practice abroad. Having this in mind, we have concluded that an analysis of the structure and style of medical research papers and teaching scientific medical writing to students are very useful.Intercommunication, which means reading and publishing articles, getting involved in research, participating in conferences, following new improvements, is the imperative device for the self-development of a doctor.
Cultivation of Scientific Thinking Ability and Innovation Ability in the Teaching of Electrodynamics  [cached]
Haiyan Li
Modern Applied Science , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/mas.v4n2p85
Abstract: As the important part of the theoretical physics, the electrodynamics is a theoretical basic course of the physics and relative subjects. To adapt the demands for cultivating the target of highly-quality talents in the 21st century, students’ scientific thinking ability and innovation ability should be mainly cultivated in the teaching. Based on practice experiences, this article describes the establishment of the new physical theory, narrates the development of the subject and its application in the modern scientific technology, and studies the cultivation of students’ two abilities combining with scientific researches.

Animal welfare: review of the scientific concept and definition
Corrado Carenzi,Marina Verga
Italian Journal of Animal Science , 2010, DOI: 10.4081/ijas.2009.s1.21
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present a review of the current scientific viewpoints about the concept and definition of animal welfare. The need of interaction among different disciplines is stressed, as well as the need to scientifically assess welfare, using validated indicators. The role of applied ethology in animal welfare science is stressed. The paper provides a brief overview of the historical steps in the development of the concept and presents scientific viewpoints, briefly explaining their theoretical foundation. The possibility of defining welfare on a scientific basis is explained, identifying the main problems according to the scientific, cultural and social background. Another aspect considered is the relationship between welfare and ethics, evidencing the meaning of such an interaction and its possible evolution.
An innovative teaching practice:Scientific investigation as a creative teaching method in primary education  [cached]
TSE Wing Cheung, Alex
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching , 2001,
Abstract: In an attempt to vitalize the learning and teaching with creativity and training of high level thinking skills in the classroom, this author tried to introduce scientific investigation in the primary science lessons. It was presented as a dynamic teaching method against the traditional teaching mode in Hong Kong where the textbook prevails and the teacher dominates. This study aimed at a critical reflection on genuine practices of this creative teaching method in the classrooms. It mainly focused on comparing the creative and traditional teaching method, analyzing its merits and constraints, and concluding its effectiveness in teaching and learning. Similar to the findings of many research on the implementation of creative teaching method, the effectiveness of teaching and learning was not apparent at the initial stage. However, the learning motivation of students was significantly enhanced. It also made the teaching and learning more balanced and comprehensive by stressing affective and psychomotor learning. There was training of high level thinking skills during the implementation of scientific investigation. Above all, the author found an unexpected bonus - it has helped to narrow down the range of diversities in learning performance of the students though there was no significant enhancement of their learning performance in short term. Though the support for teachers is inadequate, this creative method of teaching should be encouraged. Two future trends of implementing scientific investigation in primary education in Hong Kong can be predicted. It will become an interdisciplinary teaching practice across subjects in the age of information explosion. It will also facilitate a gradual paradigm shift of teaching and learning, where teachers become mentors and facilitators of creativity while students become explorers in the creative process.
Bibliographical review on the teaching of Biology and research  [PDF]
Ma Luz Rodríguez Palmero
Investiga??es em Ensino de Ciências , 2000,
Abstract: This review complements another one done by the same author, in 1997, regarding the role of comprehending the concept of cell in the learning of Biology. In addition, some general papers on science education that provide a better understanding of research approaches used in the investigation of this topic have been included. The reviewed papers have been organized into categories according to the object of study, the relevance assigned to the cell concept, and the framework of analysis. The review shows that the concept of cell is very important in the biological conceptualization, however, it also shows the need of additional research on this matter, from theoretical frameworks that pay more attention to the psychological level, in order to provide some guidance to improve the teaching and learning processes of the biological content that presupose the comprehension of living beings.
