Abstract

How can we draw school nearer to the student? How can a teaching lesson become a workshop in which new ideas, creative solutions, new forms of research and new knowledge are being inter crossed?! The research that has been done in this paper aims to investigate the introduction of practical teaching and application of reforms in teaching natural sciences in a few schools in Stip, R. Macedonia. Data were collected from semi-structured interviews made with 11 experienced teachers of biology. The results showed that teachers occasionally introduced a small number of enhanced instructional strategies that explicitly match the formal curriculum in their classes, such as: presenting, analyzing and generalizing experimental results from practical teaching of biology in various forms. However, teachers have used fewer strategies that target encouraging higher level thinking, such as to induce students to ask questions or to learn about problem solving strategies used during lessons.
