What are the key debates in science teaching and learning today? Debates in Science Education explores the major issues all science teachers encounter in their daily professional lives. It encourages critical reflection and aims to stimulate both novice and experienced teachers to think more deeply about their practice, and link research and evidence to what they have observed in schools. Written by expert science educators, chapters tackle established and contemporary issues enabling you to reach informed judgements and argue your point of view with deeper theoretical knowledge and understanding. Each chapter is supported and extended by carefully selected further reading and reflective questions. Key debates include: * the impact of policy on science education; * transition from primary to secondary school; * getting right the secondary science curriculum; * girls in science; * sex education and science; * school science and technology; * language and communication in the classroom; * world science, local science. With its combination of expert opinion and fresh insight, Debates in Science Education is the ideal companion for any student or practising teacher engaged in initial training, continuing professional development and Masters level study.
