Teaching science: Exploring the issues
bookposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Kenneth Appleton
Teaching science: Exploring the issues provides a comprehensive program for teachers and intending teachers to acquaint themselves with the principles of teaching science in schools, and apply these to their own circumstances. It is activity based, and provides a set of basic information about each of the key issues. In line with the constructivist emphasis in the book, it encourages you to construct personal meaning from the information obtained, and provides specific structures to support this process. Of course, no book can stand alone in doing this. It very much needs the additional support of colleagues in discussion, other information sources, and opportunities to try to develop ideas in practice. Unless these are available and used, the support structures provided may be of little value.
