Senior High School Students’ Views on the Teaching of Integrated Science in Ghana

A surver by Dr. J. A. Azure on Senior High School students’ perceptions of the teaching of Integrated Science in Ghana revieled that  most of the processes of science (i.e. observing, hypothesising, classifying, taking measurements, reporting, etc.) were not often carried out in Integrated Science lessons in Ghana.

It was suggested that UEW should critically examine its integrated science curriculum to tailor it towards producing teachers who can teach science as an integrated whole or unit.
