In Your View: What Is a Good Science Teacher?
Education in Science, n257 p14-15 Sep 2014
Search the Internet for the qualities of a good teacher and you'll find that an entire range of ideas are offered. Having spent half a working life as a science teacher and the remainder as a science education consultant (and, for a period, an Ofsted team inspector!), the author would like to attempt to tease out what makes a "good science teacher." He starts out by listing what does NOT make a good teacher, followed by what DOES exemplify a good teacher.
