EILKS, Ingo; MARKS, Ralf  and  STUCKEY, Marc. Socio-scientific issues as contexts for relevant education and a case on tattooing in chemistry teaching. Educ. quím [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.1, pp.9-20. ISSN 0187-893X.

Context-based science education suggests that meaningful science teaching should be based on the lifeworld, society, or potential professional future of the pupils. But: Are all corresponding contexts for science education similarly good? This paper presents a curriculum model for using socio-scientific issues as contexts for science education in general and chemistry education in particular. It discusses the implications of this approach and presents an example on chemistry teaching about the issue of tattooing.
