AIMS OF TEACHING NATURAL SCIENCE
• Awareness about millennium development
goals
• To develop scientific literacy
• To effect social change
• Eradication of diseases
• Better nutrition
• Population control
• Health index
• Self sufficiency in food
• Modern agricultural practices..... etc
MILLENNIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS
In September of the year 2000, leaders of 189
countries met at the united nations in
NewYork and endorsed the Millennium
declaration. A commitment to work together
to build a safer, more prosperous and
equitable world. The declaration was
translated into a roadmap setting out eight
time bound and measurable goals to be
reached by 2015, known as the millennium
development goals.
EIGHT GOALS
• Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
• Achieve universal primary education
• Promote gender equality and empower women
• Reduce Child Mortality
• Improve maternal health
• Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases
• Ensure environmental sustainability
• Develop a global partnership for development
Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
• Reduce by half the proportion of people whose income is less than 1
doller a day

• Develop further an open ,rule based ,predictable , non-
discriminatory trending and financial system
• Address special needs of the least developed countries
landlocked countries and small island developing states
• In cooperation with pharmaceutical companies , provide
access to affordable essential drugs in developing countries.
SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
Scientific literacy is defined as knowing basic facts and concepts about
science and having an understanding of how science works.
OR
It is the ability to understand and apply basic knowledge of scientific
processes and concepts in our lives.
It helps us to understanding nature , analyzing problems and
phenomena, participating in a technical / scientific discussion, asking
questions.
The use of this term most likely began with James Bryant in the 1940s
and was elaborated for educators in a 1958 article by Paul DeHart Hurd
entitled “Scientific Literacy “. According to Hurd ,scientific literacy
describes an understanding of science and it’s application to social
experience.
TYPES OF SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
• CIVIC SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
• PRACTICAL SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
• CULTURAL SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
CIVIC SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
CIVIC SCIENTIFIC LITERACY REFERS TO THE ABILITY OF A CITIZEN
TO FIND , MAKE SENCE OF , AND USE INFORMATION ABOUT
SCIENCE OR TECHNOLOGY TO ENGAGE IN A PUBLIC DISCUSSION
OF POLICY CHOICES INVOLVING SCIENCE OR TECHNOLOGY.
SOMEONE WITH CIVIC SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
UNDERSTANDS ENOUGH ABOUT SCIENCE TO COMPREHEND THE
LIKELY CONSEQUENCES OF LEGISLATION INVOLVING SCIENTIFIC
MATTERS.
PRACTICAL SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
PRACTICAL SIENTIFIC LITERACY ENTAILS KNOWING ENOUGH
ABOUT SCIENTIFIC AND NATURAL LAWS TO MAKES DECISIONS
ABOUT ONE’S DAY TO DAY LIFE AND LIVELIHOOD, AS OPPOSED
TO GOVERNMENT AND LEGISLATION.
CULTURAL SCIENTIFIC LITERACY
THIS TYPE OF SIENTIFIC LITERACY IS THE SCIENTIC KNOWLEDGE
THAT IS GENERALLY ASSUMED TO BE POSSESSEDBY SOMEONE
WHO IS CULTURALLY LITERATE, THAT IS, SOMEONE FAMILIAR
WITH THE GENERAL KNOWLEDGE AND IDIOMS THAT MAKE UP
THE DOMINANT CULTURE OF HIS  HER SOCIETY. IN OTHER
WORDS, BEING CULTURALLY LITERATE ENTAILS A MASTERY OF
CERTAIN SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES.
SOCIAL CHANGES
• Social changes is a concept in sociology which talks about a
change in the established patterns of social relations or
change in social values or change in structures and
subsystems operating in the society. The term social change is
used to include the changes that takes place in human
interaction and interrelation.
Social changes may be defined as the process which is
discernible in the alteration of the structure and functioning of a
particular social system. It is a term used to describe variation in
, modifications of , any aspects of social patterns and interaction
with in a social organization.
Social changes includes,
1. PROMOTING HEALTH AND HYGIENE
2. POPULATION CONTROL
PROMOTING HEALTH AND HYGIENE
• Health is defined as a state of complete physical , mental and social well
being . Hygiene is the science and art of preserving and improving health.
• Natural science teacher should find the curriculum with respect to health and
hygiene
• Cleanliness , disinfection, immunization , hygiene habits , use and abuse of
drugs, control of insects, rats and stray dogs , disposal of waste, first aid ,
sanitation etc.. At home is to be developed in pupil.
• The basic conditions necessary to keep good health are proper diet, personal
domestic hygiene, fresh air, exercise, relaxation good habits.
• Girls students are made more aware of the physiological changes they are
likely to encounter during adolescence and are educated to cope with such
stress, emotions and personal hygiene.
POPULATION CONTROL
• Population explosion is the root cause of poverty, crime, war, corruption and all other
problems.
• It upsets the balance between nature and population
• It create economical , environmental , and unemployment problems.
• Decrease in death rate and increase in birth rate are the major cause of population
explosion.
• Teaching natural science helps to provide an awareness about ;
1. ill effect of over population
2. cause of over population
3. need for controlling population growth through proper family planning
programme
4. awareness about immunological approach to fertility control.
