Science Education for Australian Students - Teaching Science from Foundation to Year 12

Author(s): Angela Fitzgerald (Editor); Deborah Corrigan (Editor)

Science

This book explores science education as a learning continuum across all years of schooling from Foundation to Year 12. It seeks to build pedagogical and content expertise by providing both a level of support and challenge for all teachers based on current research and best practice.

The text considers key issues including: what the learner brings to the science classroom; what primary and secondary teachers can learn from each other; the constructivist perspective and its value in learning science; context-based science education; the structure of the Australian curriculum and science education policy; teacher identity; the nature of scientific knowledge; principles of assessment and understanding the role of ICT in science teaching and learning.

Featuring case studies and practical examples in each chapter, this book provides pre-service teachers with the understanding and tools to ensure their students are engaged and inspired in science education throughout their school years.
