Abstract

The understanding of the nature of science of teachers can potentially influence their teaching practices, which can consequently shape student learning of science. Thus, the teachers should possess an adequate understanding of the nature of science and integrate it into teaching science. This case study aimed to explore the understanding of four Thai elementary science teachers of the nature of science and their teaching practices. The three aspects of the nature of science that were focused on were: acquisition of scientific knowledge, the nature of scientific knowledge, and relationship between science and society. Data collection methods involved a questionnaire, individual semi-structured interviews, classroom observation, and a collection of teaching materials. The data were analyzed using content analysis. The results indicated that all teachers had an inadequate understanding of the nature of science and that they usually conducted lectures and demonstrations that rarely reflected the nature of science. The study therefore suggested that there should be teacher professional development to support the teachers and provide them with an adequate understanding of the nature of science which they would then be able to integrate into their teaching of science.

Abstract

Since nature of science (NOS) has taken its part in the Basic Education Core Curriculum B.E. 2544 (2001), there have been serious attempts to foster students’ understanding of NOS. This article aims at examining various documents about promoting NOS instruction both outside and inside Thailand. This review leads to a notice about a critical difference between the two contexts. That is, while international research describes that NOS is beliefs and values inherent in scientific knowledge and processes by which scientific knowledge is acquired, Thailand’s National Science Curriculum Standards tends to mean that NOS is scientific processes. This difference causes a number of Thai teachers to misunderstand that NOS is scientific processes and that teaching NOS is teaching the students to have scientific process skills. Thus, to reduce and prevent those misconceptions, the authors propose that revising the content about NOS in Thailand’s National Science Curriculum Standards is necessary.
