摘要

本文報告一項學校本位科學課程發展計畫的成果,該計畫由香港教育學院與四所香港中學合作,旨在推動中學生發展科學探究技巧。為達到計畫目標,研究小組根據一個學校本位課程發展的模式,設計了一系列支援推行科學探究的教材。為訂立有效的策略設計科學探究活動,小組透過問卷收集學生對活動的回應。結果顯示該計畫對學生學習科學的興趣有著正面影響。文末介紹改善支援科學探究的支援策略,並以一個兩階段的設計模式來策畫科學探究。

關鍵詞:科學探究;專題探究;科學學習

Abstract

This paper describes the outcome of a science school-based curriculum development project, a collaborative effort between the Hong Kong Institute of Education and four secondary schools. The project attempted to promote the development of science investigation skills among secondary students. To achieve this objective, the project team devised a series of teaching resources to support the implementation of science investigation activities through a school-based curriculum development model. To formulate effective strategies to develop science investigation tasks, a questionnaire was administered to collect feedback from the students. The findings of the project provided evidence that there were positive influences on students' interest in learning science. The paper concludes by introducing strategies to improve and support science investigations and the planning of a two-stage model for scientific inquiry.
