Title : Teacher Perceptions of Factors Influencing Science Delivery in Francophone-Minority Settings
Text : The study described in this paper is the initial qualitative phase of a multi-phase study focusing on improving science education delivery in francophone-minority settings in central Canada. This phase of the study elucidates the broad and complex factors influencing Kindergarten to Grade 9 science curriculum delivery in these settings. The study begins by exploring the themes generated from several qualitative studies pertaining to the phenomenon of science delivery in selected francophone-minority settings in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Using Urie Bronfenbrenner’s bio-ecological model, the study, furthermore, systematically conceptualizes the origin of and interplay among these factors. Finally, a description of current science education development activities within Manitoba francophone-minority settings is provided.
