A fully revised edition of this thorough introduction to the theory and practice of science teaching in middle and secondary schools

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. It presents science teaching as a dynamic, collaborative activity and highlights recent developments in research into excellence in science teaching. Emphasizing pedagogy, curriculum, and assessment, this book is designed for educators preparing to teach science at middle and high school levels. Fully revised and updated, this second edition includes new chapters which address the use of ICT in the science classroom and suggest innovative ways of developing an engaging, thinking science classroom. Throughout the book, the authors reflect a student-centered approach to science teaching as advocated in reform curriculum documents throughout the world. Written by leading science educators and incorporating classroom examples and activities, this book outlines the main issues science teachers face today.
