Science Curriculum Reform for the Changing Future — An Explication of a Curriculum Inquiry Framework and the Educational Context of Sixth Form Science Education in Hong Kong
This article explicates learning context of the sixth form science education in Hong Kong, with particular attention paid to the changing educational structure, the era of the information age, and to some extent, the 1997 issue. Some recent science curriculum developments in the UK and USA are presented. A curriculum inquiry framework describing the essential components for curriculum design, and implementation and any inquiry into the total curriculum has been delineated. These provide the necessary conceptual background and heuristics for any science curriculum reform or inquiry that is likely to occur at the sixth form level in Hong Kong in the immediate future.
