||"Teacher perceptions of factors influencing science program delivery in rural francophone minority settings in Manitoba & Saskatchewan"
||This paper examines the broad and complex factors influencing science program delivery in Grade 1-9 classrooms in rural francophone-minority settings in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The presentation outlines the outcomes of several school case studies involving questionnaire surveys and follow-up interviews.
These studies suggest a variety of teacher personal attribute factors are contributing to and impeding science delivery in francophone-minority settings, beyond those commonly identified in mainstream schools. The study will furthermore outline the stages being used to develop a science evaluation instrument that might be used in francophone minority settings to diagnostically identify existing contributors and impediments to science delivery as a foundation for school science curriculum development.
