Readings in Science Education. A Source Book.
Jenkins, Edgar, Ed.; Whitfield, Richard, Ed.
The purpose of this book, one of a series of publications from the Science Teacher Education Project, is to provide a collection of some important readings in science education for student teachers, inservice teachers and others interested in this field of study. The selection of readings reflects international appeal and applicability of science education as a field of study; a significant number, however, were drawn from what was considered untopped British sources. The seven chapters proceed logically from the nature, place and aims of science within education, through relationships and communications with pupils, resources, teaching methods, assessment, and aspects of course design. The readings are accompanied with author comments, questions for discussion, and in some cases opposing and provocative views for the reader to consider. (Author/EB)
