This book provides a comprehensive and critical guide to the new and experienced teachers on the teaching and learning of science. It combines an overview of current research with an account of curriculum changes to provide a valuable and practical guide to the business of classroom teaching.

  • inclusion
  • planning teaching and setting targets
  • assessment with a focus on assessment for learning
  • the use of ICT in science pedagogy
  • language and literacy in science education
  • the way 'science works' and the nature of science.
