Title: The promotion of thinking in selected lower secondary science classrooms in Trinidad and Tobago: Implications for teachers' education
Author: Herbert, Susan M.; Rampersad, Joycelyn
Abstract: This article reports on a study into the levels of thinking promoted in selected lower secondary science classrooms in Trinidad and Tobago.

There are implications for teacher education programmes
