Publisher Description

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 and embraces the full spectrum of contemporary reforms in education. The Art of Teaching Science presents science teaching as a dynamic, collaborative activity and highlights recent developments in research into excellence in science teaching. Emphasising pedagogy, curriculum and assessment, the book is designed for educators preparing to teach science at middle and secondary school levels. Fully revised and updated, this second edition includes new chapters which address the requirements of the national documents on science curriculum on engaging students in science, ICT in the science classroom and developing a 'thinking' science classroom. Throughout the book, the authors reflect a student-centred approach to science teaching as advocated in reform curriculum documents throughout the world. Written by leading science educators and incorporating classroom examples and activities, The Art of Teaching Science outlines the main issues science teachers face today.
