Edited By Keeves,John P. And Watanabe,Ryo
The aim of this handbook is to present readily accessible, but scholarly sources of information about educational research in the Asia-Pacific region. The scale and scope of the book is such that the articles included in it provide substantive contributions to knowledge and understanding of education in the Asia region. In so doing, the articles present the problems and issues facing education in the region and the findings of research conducted within the region that contribute to the resolution of these problems and issues. Moreover, since new problems and issues are constantly arising, the articles in the handbook also indicate the likely directions of future developments. The different articles within the handbook seek to conceptualize the problems in each specific content area under review, provide an integration of the research conducted within that area, the theoretical basis of the research the practical implications of the research and the contribution of the research towards the resolution of the problems identified. Thus, the articles do not involve the reporting of fresh research, but rather require a synthesis of the research undertaken in a particular area, with reference to the research methods employed and the theoretical frameworks on which the research is based. In general, the articles do not advocate a single point of view, but rather, present alternative points of view and comment on the debate and disagreements associated with the conduct and findings of the research. Furthermore, it should be noted, that the handbook is not concerned with research methodology, and only considers the methods employed in inquiry in so far as the particular methods of research contribute to the effective investigation of problems and issues that have arisen in the conduct and provision of education at different levels within the region.

Woolnough, Brian E.
EX LIBRARY.One library stamp,adhesive label to base of spine.Science teaching in schools is often criticized, especially by older students, for being too prescribed, too impersonal, too lacking in opportunity for personal judgement and creativity. Science has become reduced to a series of small, apparently trivial activities and pieces of knowledge, unrelated to the world in which the students are growing up, and inhibiting to their developing personalities and aspirations. And yet, despite the pressures of national curriculum and examination syllabuses, science in schools can be, and often is, much more exciting and stimulating than that. This book celebrates such science teaching, and the qualities of the teachers who produce it, and argues that doing science should be a holistic not a reductionist activity, involving the affective as well as the cognitive aspects of a student's life. We should be concerned not only with what students know and can do, but also with whether they want to do it. Furthermore, Brian Woolnough argues that the best form of effective science teaching is through student research projects, in which students take a problem of personal concern to themselves and tackle it, worry at it, persevere in it and, meeting its challenges, produce their own solution. Such involvement in genuine scientific activity is, it is argued, not only possible in schools but essential if school science can do justice to our students and to the scientific enterprise itself.
