The Editorial Panel of the Queensland Researcher welcomes readers to the first issue for 1989.
The lead article on primary music curriculum was written by a music teacher now working in Research Services, Queensland Department of Education. It is based on her experiences teaching in primary schools in the 1970s and 1980s, and argues strongly for a literacy-based approach to music curriculum.
Research Reports focus attention on recently completed research studies in Queensland. Studies of Mathematics, Science and Bicycle Helmet Wearing in schools are summarised in this edition. The research for these studies was conducted within the Queensland Department of Education.
The Thesis Abstracts section of the journal is another regular feature. The theses outlined were submitted as whole or partial requirements of Masters or PhD degrees in education.
Publication Reviews are included regularly to provide readers with up-to-date information about recent publications. The books reviewed in this issue are of particular interest because they represent a group of teachers' choices of books most likely to contribute substantially to the professional development of all educators.
The Editorial Panel would be pleased to have readers' suggestions for future issues of the journal. Please send your contribution to the address given inside the front cover.
