Development and Dilemmas in Science Education.
Fensham, Peter, Ed.
This book, written by science educators from nine countries, provides a summary of the strengths and weaknesses in practices of science education in schools, and of research in science education. It points out a number of directions that are likely to lead to improvements in the teaching and learning of science if applied in the future. Topics discussed include: (1) the history of science education reform from an international perspective; (2) the epistemology of science education; (3) science teaching; (4) how children learn; (5) primary school science; (6) constructivism and science education; (7) language; (8) the role of laboratories in science education; (9) gender issues in science education; and (10) science, technology, and society.
