A survey of pupils' interests in plants and animals at the ninth grade level.
MetadataShow full item record
A survey of pupils' interests in plants and animals at the ninth grade level has been completed. This study was done for two major reasons. One reason was to find out the interests of students who in a year or two will be taking a biology course. Since it has long been an axiom in education that students learn more easily and more readily those things in which they are interested. Teachers want to know these interests. Teachers might then expend most effort on those parts of a biology course which will appeal to the students and which these students can most readily make integral parts of their living experience. By knowing these interests, the teacher can plan classroom and science fair projects. [TRUNCATED]
