Science for children is the leading Australian primary science KLA
text for student teachers. The text is designed to be interactive,
it challenges students to think about the nature and importance of
science as well as offering practical classroom based strategies
for students to commence their science teaching career. Although
the text favours a constrsuctivist perspective, it offers four
different approaches to teaching (See section 2). The aim is to
encourage student teachers to consider a variety of approaches to
teaching science as they are developing their own personal teaching
framework. The text features many student exercises and tutorials
as well as examples of students work. Teaching primary science has
a clear focus on planning and program development and continues the
discussion of gender and science teaching. Whilst providing an
overview to a range of teaching approaches, the reader is
encouraged to develop their own approach through exposure to, and
experimentation with the advantages and disadvantages of each one.
This is based on the assumption that it is only by doing so that
students can develop their repertoire of teaching strategies and
their concerns about teaching science can be addressed. Another
distinctive feature of the book is the personal speaking style in
which it is written. Readers are encouraged to engage with their
ideas and feelings. The book is also highly interactive; students
are invited to undertake many tasks.
