ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a study related to procedures that should be used to train teachers in the skill of incorporating set induction techniques in their instructional strategies. This study combines one of the latest developments in the substantive and environmental dimensions of biology education (the BSCS) with one of the latest developments in the behavioral dimensions of the educative process to assess the total impact of this combination upon the learner. If significant differences can be shown in the areas of pupil assessment of effective teaching, pupil achievement, and pupil retention between groups using the BSCS materials alone and those using the BSCS materials in combination with teacher use of set induction techniques, then an important advancement in the knowledge of the educative process has been made. Such data would provide a strong argument for greater effort in combining the curriculum developments and their advances in the substantive and environmental dimensions with elements of the behavioral dimension as educators seek to enhance the quality of their instructional programs.
