Abstract


India as a land of rich heritage and history, its essence was not at all considered in our school system. Its embodiment is covered in the history textbook with the world history. We have to uncover the truth that our heritage is commendable in its genuine value. It is now imperative that we examine the possibility to assess the utility of social events and its memories in the process of understanding the worth of scientific concepts. These memories about various events will be more inspiring if it will be conveyed through visuals. Then the work will become impressionistic and reflective since a certain amount of objectivity can be perceived. So the investigator is discussing the major inadequacies of the contemporary Physical Science Reader in generating and maintaining scientific interest among secondary school students and the modifications to be incorporated to the contemporary Physical Science Reader. The method was the Focus Group Discussion conducted by the investigator with twelve participants. The members of the focus group were discussed and suggested a Visual Ethnographic Science Reader for Secondary School. The Visual Ethnographic Approach can support the learning process with historical facts, visual based cultural activities, enriched content and more effective Assessment technique. So the students will inculcate a habit of finding science in anything and everything around him. This helps him in the process of knowledge formulation.
