Contents Notes
Introduction, history, and definition of laboratories -- The education context -- Laboratory experiences and student learning -- Current laboratory experiences -- Teacher and school readiness for laboratory experiences -- Facilities, equipment, and safety -- Laboratory experiences for the 21st century -- Appendixes : Agendas of fact-finding meetings -- Biographical sketches of committee members and staff. "Laboratory experiences as a part of most U.S. high science curricula have been taken for granted for decades, but they have rarely been carefully examined. What do they contribute to science learning? What can they contribute to science learning? What is the current status of labs in our nation s high schools as a context for learning science? This book looks at a range of questions about how laboratory experiences fit into U.S. high schools."--NAP Web site.
