The Art of Teaching Primary Science

Vaille Dawson,

The Art of Teaching Primary Science
 
 
Children have an innate curiosity about the natural world that makes teaching science a rewarding experience.

However teaching science is an art that requires a unique combination of knowledge and skills to make the most of students' interest and foster their understanding. With contributions from leading educators, The Art of Teaching Primary Science addresses the fundamental issues in teaching science in primary and early childhood years.

Reflecting current research in science education, The Art of Teaching Primary Science covers the following areas:

* the theoretical underpinnings of science education and curriculum;
* effective science teaching practice—planning, teaching strategies, investigations, resources and assessment;
* key issues including scientific literacy, integrating science and technology, and activities outside the classroom.

The Art of Teaching Primary Science is invaluable for student teachers as a guide to the fundamentals of science education, and as a resource for experienced teachers to review and enhance their professional skills.

'An excellent reference for those teachers of the primary years seeking the best ways to engage their students in good science and scientific investigation, and keen to link these with other learning areas.'
Peter Turnbull, President, Australian Science Teachers Association
