How Science Works : Teaching and Learning in the Science Classroom Paperback / softback


This title introduces how science works, the way science is now taught in secondary schools, to all teachers - whether trainee, recently qualified or established. "How Science Works (HSW)" provides the opportunity for pupils not only to understand the facts of science, but also to develop as critical thinkers and to become creative problem-solvers.

James Williams introduces HSW, looking at the background to this approach to teaching science and draws on the current curriculum to explore strategies for effectively introducing aspects of HSW into lessons across all the science disciplines.

Each chapter includes reflective tasks to use individually or as part of group discussions, research tasks, further reading and associated web links.
