Teaching Language and Study Skills in Secondary Science.
Advice and guidance for developing students' language and study skills are offered for science teachers in this book. The suggestions are intended for practicing secondary science teachers to use in helping their students to become autonomous learners. Most of the 10 chapters in this book consist of an introduction, a listing and discussion of problem areas, and suggested strategies for coping with the problems. The section on problems is primarily theoretical and draws on research and surveys as well as personal experience. The major topics addressed include: (1) the aims of science education and the teaching of study skills; (2) reading skills and materials; (3) pupils' writing; (4) worksheets; (5) teacher talk; (6) talking and listening by pupils; (7) information skills; (8) examination techniques; and (9) the teaching of language and study skills in science. Several of the chapters also contain reference lists and an appendix which provides the teacher with practical directions, forms and policy statements. (ML)
