There is nothing more exciting in science teaching than transforming students into effective, enthusiastic biologists, chemists and physicists. To this end, this book spells out the skills and strategies of the successful science teacher in action.
Drawing on years of teaching experience, Richard and Emily Giubertoni set out top tips for effective practice in all areas of a science teacher's role, from curriculum planning to managing practicals, from powerful hinterland stories to how to approach controversial topics.
The useful approaches set out in this book will have value for science teachers at all stages of their careers, from trainee teachers to department leaders.
Being an effective teacher is not innate: we can all learn to teach, to teach well, and to teach better. In this thoroughly comprehensive overview of science teaching in action, all science teachers will find ideas to strengthen, inspire and further develop their teaching practice, in a practical and pragmatic book that is enjoyable and engaging to read.
