    Abstract

    The first decade of the 21st Century was characterized by reforms in science education in general and chemistry in particular. Scientific literacy and thinking skills continue to be increasingly important goals of science education reforms. These goals can be achieved via learning science in context (Gilbert, 2006), learning scientific concepts and processes through real-world problems, casestudies, or adapted scientific articles (Avargil, Herscovitz, and Dori, 2012; Yarden, 2009).
