The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of socio-scientific inquiry (SSI) instruction on student achievement and attitudes towards science. Specifically, this study addressed the following research questions:
- What impact does participation in an SSI unit have on high school students’ knowledge of science content?
- Is there a difference in gains in science knowledge between students based on levels of prior knowledge in science?
- What impact does participation in an SSI unit have on high school students’ attitudes towards science?
