Abstract

What are the benefits for high school science teaching of the Partners In Science experience? They may range from minimal to spectacular depending on the teacher involved and the support available to bring new information, techniques and credentials as a teacher-scientist back to the classroom. Two outstanding high school science teachers, Jeff Lodcwood, formerly of Tucson's Sahuaro High School (see "High School Students and Questions Without Answers," page 43). and Maureen Daschel of St. Mary's Academy of Portland, Oregon (see ''A Research Methods Class at a Girlis' School· Overturning Old Stereotypes," page 51), describe the highly positive developments that took place in then classrooms following their partners years. Both agree that education in the sciences improves enormously when students are given an opportunity to explore questions without answers, and when teachers become their students' colleagues rather than their supervisors.
