dc.description.abstractThe Problem: The problem investigated is the preparation of science teachers at institutions for the education of Indians in Natal. In this study a brief comparison of the preparation of science teachers is also made with some institutions in Great Britain and parts of the United States of America. Motivation: In 1968 the writer participated in a Summer Institute in Pennsylvania in the United States. It was there that he was exposed to modern science curriculum projects and new trends in the teaching of science. Being a lecturer in science at a college of education, he was motivated to examine current trends in science education and more particularly the preparation of science teachers amongst Indians. Methods and materials used in the investigation: The following methods were used: 1. For background information books, journals, periodicals, reports etc. were consulted. 2. To examine the position of science teaching at high schools and to find out some of the problems with which science teachers are confronted, questionnaires were used. Questionnaires were also administered to first year students at a college of education in order to get some idea of the teaching of science and its problems from the students' point of view. 3. Visits were made to various institutions in Britain and America to examine science education programmes. 4. Personal interviews were held with the lecturing staff at institutions overseas and at the Springfield College of Education and University of Durban Westville.en
