Current reform initiatives in science education such as Project 2061: Science for All Americans and Benchmarks for Science Literacy from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Scope, Sequence & Coordination from the National Science Teachers Association, and Science Education Standards from the National Academy of Sciences stress the need for the development of scientific literacy. For the most part, these reform documents also stress the importance of process or inquiry approaches to science, realistic problem-solving for students, and integration rather than segregation of content disciplines (Willis, 1995).
