Teaching Secondary Science

Theory and Practice

Edited by Geoff Woolcott, Southern Cross University, Australia, Robert Whannell, University of New England, Australia
Textbook
Teaching Secondary Science: Theory and Practice provides a dynamic approach to preparing preservice science teachers for practice. Divided into two parts - theory and practice - the text allows students to first become confident in the theory of teaching science before showing how this theory can be applied to practice through ideas for implementation, such as sample lesson plans. These examples span a variety of age levels and subject areas, allowing preservice teachers to adapt each exercise to suit their…
