Theoretical Framework

  • Theresa SchulteEmail author


In the first chapter of this theoretical framework, I will address the role of science within education in general. It provides the theoretical foundations for the analyses conducted in this study in light of the question what aspects of science education are considered important for the scientifically literate individual in the society of today and in the near future. By defining related terms and concepts, I will further point out the significance of science education for the individual and society and shed light on purposes and forms of organization of the compulsory years of school science education.
