Material Development and Meeting the Needs of the Society: Example Practices for Science and Mathematics Education

The purpose of this study is to examine the instructional materials generated by pre-service teachers, as well as their understanding of societal demands. Pre-service instructors’ Student Worksheets (SW) and jurors’ Material Evaluation Forms were employed as data sources. In this study, the document analysis methodology from qualitative research methodologies was employed to examine data. According to the findings, 5 of the student needs and 15 of the society’s demands are being addressed. Four of the kids’ demands were discovered to be the same as those of society. It was discovered that students’ demands are learning-oriented, but society’s needs are tied to both student learning and material use. In order to raise new generations equipped with 21st century abilities, pre-service teachers should focus on interdisciplinary linkages in terms of both student and societal demands.
