"The purpose of this yearbook is to focus the relevant data and concepts from the psychology of learning upon the problems of instruction in the elementary and secondary schools. The achievement of this purpose involves four steps: first, stating how learning proceeds as a general psychological process and how children are motivated to learn; second, describing how respective aspects or categories of behavior, such as motor skills or attitudes, are learned; third, pointing out the implications for instruction of accumulated knowledge from the field of learning; and fourth, redefining instruction in terms of the school as a laboratory for learning. This yearbook will, it is hoped, symbolize the shift in thinking concerning educational method during the last thirty-five years which is reflected in a change of emphasis from "techniques of presenting content" to "directing the learning of the child." Section I of this yearbook presents two chapters which outline the general nature of learning and the motivational basis of learning. These two chapters provide a frame of reference within which fall the more specific types of learning described in Section II. Section II exemplifies a somewhat different approach to learning problems than is usually presented. The general title of the section, "How Children Learn in the School Environment," states the central problem. Children in the elementary- and high-school grades learn a variety of behavioral patterns. This section organizes these products of learning in terms which, while not necessarily mutually exclusive, are descriptive of a variety of generalized products. These are (a) motor types of activity, (b) information, concepts, and principles, (c) interests, motives, and attitudes, (d) social, emotional, and personal adjustment, (e) aesthetic types of behavior, and (f) principles and techniques of problem-solving. The authors of this section have, through principles and illustrations, shown how children acquire the types of behavior subsumed under the six categories just listed. An explicit statement which is descriptive of the type of behavior under discussion is an important feature of each of these chapters. Particular problems which school personnel face in providing for each of these desired types of behavior are also discussed. The implications of these discussions for improved instruction are treated in Section III of the yearbook. Section IV includes a summary of the preceding chapters and a redefinition of method in the school. It presents and defends the point of view that the classroom must cease to be a lesson-hearing room and must become a learning laboratory"--Introduction.

Current developments in science education are reviewed in this yearbook of the national society for the study of education. The role of science in our culture and its relationship to the humanities and to society are discussed. The objectives of science teaching are considered from the viewpoints of the research scientists, the school administrator, the college dean, the industrial researcher, and the behavioral scientist. A survey of learning theory includes information related to concept development, critical thinking, and scientific attitudes and methods. The nature of creativity, social atmosphere, and personality are analyzed as factors influencing the career choices of scientists. Chapters dealing with secondary school science are concerned with the existing status and with the improvement of programs by means of curriculum development and reorganization through the cooperative efforts of government agencies, industrial organizations, and professional groups. Chapters dealing with elementary school science consider (1) existing programs, (2) program development, and (3) teaching and evaluation. A section on college science describes current trends and teacher education for general education courses. Sections are devoted also to (1) curriculum development, (2) supervision, and (3) facilities, equipment, and instructional materials. Chapters on teacher education and professional growth contain information about (1) science in the general education of teachers, (2) subject matter courses, (3) professional education, and (4) opportunities for individual professional improvement. Final chapters describe needed research and problems and issues in science education.
