Altogether, the booklet lays the rules for using this genuine textual content style for the educational and educating of technological know-how in secondary schools.

Example text

Hedged propositions allow writers not only to express their uncertainty concerning the factuality of their statements but also to indicate deference to their readers (Hyland 1994). That is, a hedged text is a type of invitation to the reader to get involved in its assessment, modification, and refinement. This expression of uncertainty in scientific knowledge as it is found in PSL stands in contrast to the certain way in which science often is presented in secondary literature. Scientific text genres that are written for the general public or students are termed secondary literature.

The emerging idea is that the fundamental sense is critical in supporting the derived sense. ” (Norris and Phillips 2003, p. 236). One of the aspects of the derived meaning of scientific literacy is the ability to think scientifically (DeBoer 2000). Since, from an epistemological perspective, inquiry is simply the process of doing science (Schwab 1962), we regard inquiry thinking as one aspect of the derived sense of scientific literacy. Inquiry learning has been classified as learning science as inquiry and by inquiry (Tamir 1985).
