    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    Aim: To conduct a state-of-the-art survey of current practice in biology,
    physics, chemistry and nature education at all levels of lower secondary

    Results: As regards teaching methods, the emphasis in science instruction is on whole-class instruction. There exist considerable differences between the
    various types of school in respect of the amount of time devoted to laboratory
    sessions. There is little interest in integrating aspects of biology, physics
    and chemistry. The structuring of science lessons is largely based on to the
    textbook that is being used. There exists a considerable discrepancy between
    current teaching practice and the situation that policy-makers and experts
    consider desirable for the implementation of the common core curriculum.
