a very welcome addition to the resources science teachers (including those preparing to teach) have to draw on to improve the quality of the science learning of their students. The authors have done an excellent job of interpreting how a number of the exciting ideas and teaching strategies that we know from recent research can lead to better learning of science.'
Peter J. Fensham, Emeritus Professor of Science Education, Monash University
The editors have assembled a group of enlightened science educators to share their passion for teaching. Each chapter highlights ways in which teachers can make their teaching effective, exciting and satisfying.'
Gary Thomas, President, Australian Science Teachers' Association
Science teaching is an art that requires a unique combination of knowledge and skills to engage students and foster their understanding. This book is a thorough introduction with its finger firmly on the pulse of the challenges of the science classroom.
The Art of Teaching Science presents science teaching as a dynamic, collaborative activity and explores recent changes in the theory underlying excellent science teaching. Chapters on planning, teaching approaches, resources, and assessment cover the key elements of practical science education. Controversial issues in science, equity and integration across the curriculum are also addressed. Teachers are encouraged to maximise the potential of electronic and traditional resources both in and out of the lab to engage their students.
Written by leading science educators and incorporating classroom examples and activities, The Art of Teaching Science explores the main issues science teachers face today.
