Summary

Changes in American secondary school biological education during the period 1890-1960 are described. Information from the reports of important committees summarizes changes in biological education during each decade of the period covered by the study. Changes in course content, teaching methodology, and rationale are related to corresponding changes in social structure, educational philosophy, and existing knowledge of learning theory. Topical areas analyzed include (1) course objectives, (2) criteria for the selection of course content, (3) textbooks, (4) the learning of biology, and (5) instructional resources. Unresolved problems in biological education and problems and issues in teaching biology are discussed. (ag)
