UNESCO Handbook for Science Teachers.
Lockard, J. D., Ed.
Written for classroom teachers as well as preservice teachers, this book provides information, methodologies, and discussion intended to help educators develop and modify their own philosophy of science and science teaching. Part I examines reasons for teaching science, the intellectual and emotional development of children and their implications for science teaching, and content and methodological approaches appropriate for different situations. Part II covers facilities, equipment and materials for science teaching and addresses safety and audiovisual aids. Illustrations and photographs exemplify different points discussed. The appendices present information, case studies, and tasks on educational issues for debate related to why children should learn and goals and objectives of science teaching. This volume serves as a companion to the "New Unesco Source Book for Science Teaching (ED095022), which offers ideas for simple scientific activities, investigations, and experiments. (DC)
