LAP Lambert Academic Publishing “Two roads divulged in the woods and I-- I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference” - Robert Frost The researcher when embarked upon the study found it really challenging to work in the area of ABSTP at teacher education level. However, coming to the end of it gives a feeling of great satisfaction not for having proved the t-values to be significant but for all the difference made to the student teachers, their insight in teaching, refinement on science process skills, sensitization on environmental issues and status of science teaching at schools and their future role, understanding of the nature of science, development of scientific temper and above all enthusiasm of a teacher and the commitment to improve the status of science teaching at schools. This and many such promising programs at teacher education level seem to the researcher a ‘The End’ of the chalk and talk methods and the beginning of a new dawn of Activity Based Science Teaching.
