Teaching and Learning Primary Science.
This book explores the meaning of learning in science at the primary level and uses it as a basis for discussion of the content, methods, organization, resources, and the teacher's role. The first five chapters address how learning in science takes place, what aims are appropriate for elementary students, and how opportunities for learning can be evaluated. The remaining chapters focus on appropriate activities for elementary students, the teacher's role in these activities, assessment of progress, and curriculum planning. Chapters deal with the following subjects: (1) science as an essential part of children's education; (2) areas of scientific development; (3) changing children's ideas and ways of thinking; (4) science content; (5) evaluating opportunities for learning science; (6) learning opportunities for infants; (7) the teacher's role; (8) student assessment; (9) curriculum organization; and (10) teaching resources. An extensive reference list is also provided. (ML)
