Synopsis

Teaching Science by Tony Liversidge, Matt Cochrane, Bernard Kerfoot, Judith Thomas

Reflective practice is at the heart of effective teaching, and this book helps you develop into a reflective teacher of Science. Everything you need is here: guidance on developing your analysis and self-evaluation skills, the knowledge of what you are trying to achieve and why, and examples of how experienced teachers deliver successful lessons. It includes advice about obtaining your first teaching post, and about continuing professional development. The book shows you how to plan creative lessons, how to make good use of resources and how to assess pupils' progress effectively. Each chapter contains points for reflection, which encourage you to break off from your reading and think about the challenging questions that you face as a new teacher. The book comes with access to a companion website, www.sagepub.co.uk/secondary, where you will find: - Videos of real lessons so you can see the skills discussed in the text in action - Links to a range of sites that provide useful additional support - Extra planning and resource materials. If you are training to teach science this book will help you to improve your classroom performance, by providing you with practical advice, but also by helping you to think in depth about the key issues. It also supplements guidance on undertaking a research project with examples of the research evidence that is needed in academic work at Masters level, essential for anyone undertaking an M-level PGCE.

It covers a broad range of material and does so in a logical, easy to follow manner.' - Ian Abrahams, Lecturer in Science Education, Institute of Education, University of London'
