Abstract

The Hoshingabad Science Teaching Program has been a grassroots curriculum reform effort to contextualize science instruction in the locality of the Hoshingabad district, Madhya Pradesh, India. This report examines the discrepancies between multiple curriculum representations within the context of this science curriculum innovation. The paper concludes that local interpretations of the nature of science have in fact been an impediment to what seemed to be a valid, locally relevant science instruction.
