Inquiry: Learning Science by Doing Science
Are we Meeting Students’ Needs?
Comparisons of US students with those of other countries continue to demonstrate the need for improvements in the ways science is taught in schools. Most US students are not scientifically literate by the time they graduate from high school. In addition, in some locations, students belonging to underrepresented minority groups, economically disadvantaged students and those considered "at risk" attain lower scores on standardized measures of science achievement than other student groups.
