Two chemistry laboratory safety STS modules were developed during action research on teacher enhancement through instructional resaearch, using scaffolded, problem-centered, cooperative learning. In the process they: (a)construct more appropriate beliefs, values, and science teaching practices by (i) examining their beliefs and values about responsible citizen actions concerning STS issues, (ii) confronting inconsistencies in their beliefs and values about STS action as a science education goal, and (iii) finding a place of laboratory safety in school science education; (b) promoted abilities in (i) learning how to learn and absorb new knowledge, and (ii) doing instructional research as a part of active re-search; and (c) developed laboratory safety module and related chemistry laboratory knowledge and abilities.

Keywords:STS module development, professional development, scaffold, laboratory safety
