Abstract

Science educators are beginning to include the issues of global resources and environment in secondary science curricula, specifically the "science, technology and society" curricula (STS). The author argues that STS education may legitimately be influenced from a biblical perspective by introducing the subject of values. One way of accomplishing this is to use a values framework which subsumes the conceptual themes of the STS curriculum. For example, the themes of conviction, mutuality, orderliness and finitude can be subsumed by the values of self-benefit, the common good, and restoration-conservation.
