cultural parameters. Cognitive elements in a Philippine (Tagalog)
village and school were analyzed.
The local language was studied for its capacity of transmitting
scientific information. Verbal interaction in the science...
Purpose of the Study: The purpose of this investigation was to measure some of the effects of an elementary science program, the Science Curriculum Improvement Study (SCIS) on science achievement of certain sixth grade students. Important to the problem was how the SCIS students compared with students exposed to a...
The major purpose of this study was to test the relationship between
students' cerebral lateralization for the Arabic language and
their achievement in science. A secondary purpose was to investigate
handedness as a factor in that relationship. The experiment was conducted
