Summary

One goal of science educators is to help students to understand the nature of scientific knowledge and reasoning. Reported are ideas related to what junior high students do, can and should know about the nature of science and the use of technology in imparting such knowledge. The studies reported in this document are designed to probe junior high students' initial understanding of the nature and purpose of science, the process of scientific inquiry, and to explore whether it is possible to move students beyond their initial conceptions. Study 1 reports the first field trial of a unit designed to replace the typical junior high unit on the scientific method. Study 2 reports the results of a trial in which a teacher used this unit with her seventh grade classes. Appendices include: (1) "Study 1 Written Test"; (2) "Study 1 Clinical Interview"; (3) "Quantitative Analysis of Study 1 Pre/Posttest Clinical Interview"; (4) "Study 2 Written Test"; and (5) "Study 2 Revised Clinical Interview."
