Representation of Science Process Skills in the Chemistry Curricula for Grades 10, 11 and 12 / Turkey
on Google Scholar
In one study conducted in Turkey, Berberoğlu et al. (2002) stressed that methods of designing and implementing especially laboratory experiments should inevitably be focused on developing one’s higher-level mental skills. (Berberoğlu et al., 2002). It was suggested in a study by Koray et al. (2006) entitled as “Conditions of Representing Science Process Skills in 9th grade Chemistry Course Books and Chemistry Curriculums” that scientific process abilities should be given more place in Chemistry curriculums. In this study, conditions of representing science process skills in 10th grade, 11th grade and 12th grade Chemistry curricula were analysed. Related programs were studied by document analysis method. As a result, representations of basic level and advanced level abilities in above-mentioned programs were year ten, year eleven and year twelve respectively, and it can be inferred that the emphasis in the programs underlined by educators were not disregarded.
