[Extract] One of the recurring themes in international senior chemistry curricula is the regard that chemistry teachers must have towards students and their learning in chemistry. This same intent is well articulated in Science in the New Zealand Curriculum (1993). As stated in the national curriculum, teachers need to be concerned with assisting students in making sense of their world - that is, assisting in the construction and development of conceptual and theoretical knowledge by their students. It further suggests that the refinement of teachers' practices should assist students move from their early conceptions of natural phenomena to more scientific conceptions of these phenomena.
