Abstract:

This is a synthesis of the "major themes, the principal conjectures and the most striking tentative conclusions reached" during a conference of scientists and scholars and educators held in 1959 where the improvement of science education at the primary and secondary level was discussed. Mr. Bruner's summation concentrates on four central problems; creating curricula and teaching fundamental structure effectively; readiness for learning and teaching with an eye to continuity and development ahead; intuitive thinking and its values; and finally the stimulus of interest with the many divisive considerations here-(the sacrifice of the gifted to the average; the question of supply and demand; the new techniques and devices; etc.) This is a clear-cut summation of many of the issues at hand and ahead which face education in general but it would seem to be almost exclusively directed at this professional group.
