"While some characteristics regarding the nature of science are, to an acceptable degree, uncontroversial and have clear im-plications for school science teaching, those particular characteristics have unfortunately been reduced to a set of tenets that may easily be distorted by researchers, teachers and students. The problem is that tenets, like established scientific knowl-edge, become something to be taught rather than investigated in a science classroom. For students the tenets become some-thing to know rather than understand. This paper will address reasons and examples that raise concerns about commonly advocated tenets regarding the nature of science. It then addresses the value of addressing nature of science issues as ques-tions rather than tenets, and how this might be achieved in secondary and college science teaching."
