Population for the study was comprised of 250 science teachers of private and government schools of district Abbottabad.20…show more content…
45% science teachers are of the view that application of practical teaching skills in science education is limited due to less availability of resources. 20% are disagreed with this. (Table 4.7). 8. 45 % are strongly agreed and 44% are of view that practical work give students the necessary skills for higher education and employment.(table 4.8) 9. 36% and 40 % believes that scientific knowledge is understandable by scientific projects and practical. 20% do not agreed with this. (table 4.9) 10. 53 % and 38 % science teachers have positive attitudes and perceptions related to practical work. None of them have negative response. (Table 4.10). 11. 43% science teachers strongly believe that student show more interest and learn science subject effectively by performing practical. 34 % are agreed++++++ with this view and 15 % are disagreed with this view. ( table 4.11) 12. 43 % science teacher think that with the advancement in technologies and in this 21st century of inventions there is promotion in science education as this all is done by this science practical work.

According to science teachers view, the difficulty in application of practical teaching skills is due to limited practical resources. 7. In science ,practical work is interesting and engages learner in learning process through activity and hands on experience, thus providing motivation and inspiration that improves progress in science. 8. Practical work is a compelling way of an erudition and of learning and an emphasizing theoretical concepts in science. 9. Practical work is an essential for science education at each level as most of the science content i.e. laws, principles, theories and models has been discovered by people doing practical work. 10. Content of theory may be taught in alignment with its practical activities for better understanding by science student. 5.4 Recommendations The following recommendations are made on the basis of the results of the study. 1. There should be the application of practical teaching skills by science teacher. 2. There is need to give more attention on practical work in science
