""I read lots of books in which science education researchers tell
science teachers how to teach. This book, refreshingly, is written
the other way round.. We read a number of accounts by outstanding
science and technology teachers of how they use new approaches to
teaching to motivate their students and maximise their learning.
These accounts are then followed by some excellent. analyses from
leading academics. I learnt a lot from reading this book.,"
. Professor Michael Reiss, Institute of Education, University of
. "Provides an important new twist on one of the enduring
problems of case-based learning... This is a book that deserves
careful reading and re-reading, threading back and forwards from
the immediate and practical images of excellence in the teachers
cases to the comprehensive and. scholarly analyses in the
researchers thematic chapters."
. Professor William Louden, Edith Cowan University, Australia,"
. Through a celebration of teaching and research, this book
explores exemplary practice in science education and fuses
educational theory and classroom practice in. unique ways.
. "Analysing Exemplary Science Teaching" brings together twelve
academics, ten innovative. teachers and three exceptional students
in a conversation about teaching and learning.. Teachers and
students describe some of their most noteworthy classroom practice,
. whilst scholars of international standing use educational theory
to discuss, define and. analyse the documented classroom
Classroom experiences are directly linked with theory by a
series of annotated. comments. This distinctive web-like structure
enables the reader to actively move. between practice andtheory,
reading about classroom innovation and then theorizing. about the
basis and potential of this teaching approach..
Providing an international perspective, the special lessons
described and analysed are. drawn from middle and secondary schools
in the UK, Canada and Australia. This book. is an invaluable
resource for preservice and inservice teacher education, as well as
for. graduate studies. It is of interest to a broad spectrum of
individuals, including training. teachers, teachers, researchers,
administrators and curriculum coordinators in science. and
