Part one deals with the arguments put forward for studying science, and includes a discussion on what science learners need to know about the nature of science and how decisions about what forms science curricula are made. Part two includes articles on the processes by which science is learned and part three deals with inclusivity and diversity in science learning and what widening participation means for science education.
This is a companion book to Mediating Science Learning through ICT also published by RoutledgeFalmer.

Rethinking Single Sex Teaching (Paperback, Ed): Gabrielle Ivinson, Patricia Murphy Rethinking Single Sex Teaching (Paperback, Ed)
Gabrielle Ivinson, Patricia Murphy

"This is a very welcome challenge to current thinking on gender issues in present-day schooling." Gender and EducationThe retreat to single-sex classes in co-educational comprehensive schools in the UK reflects a long history where educational policy and practice has made explicit the belief that boys and girls are different in how they learn and what they should learn. However, there is also a common assumption that there is equality in what is made available to learn and, if there is not, then single-sex organisation achieves this. The authors challenge this opinion and offer a fresh and theoretically informed look at the debate about single-sex teaching, presenting insights from research about the intended and unintended consequences of gender division in schools. Drawing on classroom observations and in-depth interviews with teachers and students, the book illustrates the effect of single-sex classrooms on learners and on the versions of subject knowledge made available to them.In exploring the differences in teaching practices between boys' and girls' classrooms, in relation to subjects such as Science, English, Drama, and Design and Technology, the authors highlight how single-sex teaching can, inadvertently, create circumstances which limit rather than open up students' access to subject knowledge. The authors offer conceptual tools for investigating the knowledge-gender dynamic, advocating that learning will expand if teachers work with gender to help students to cross boundaries into non-traditional gender territories within subject lessons. Rethinking Single-Sex Teaching is thought-provoking reading for teachers, head teachers, academics and policy makers.

Drawing from and reworking Gothic conventions, the New Woman version is marshaled during a tumultuous cultural moment of gender anxiety either to defend or revile thecomplex character. The controversial and compelling figure of the New Woman in fin de siecle British fiction has garnered extensive scholarly attention, but rarely has she been investigated through the lens of the Gothic. Part I, "The Blurred Boundary," examines an obfuscated distinction between the New Woman and the prostitute, presented in a stunning breadth and array of writings. Part II, "Reconfigured Conventions," probes four key aspects of the Gothic, each of which is reshaped to reflect the exigencies of the fin de siecle. In Part III, "Villainous Characters," the bad father of Romantic fiction is bifurcated into the husband and the mother, both of whom cause greatsuffering to the protagonist.

Patricia Murphy explores the tenuous interplay of gender and science to show how Victorian literature both challenged and reinforced a constrictive role for women. Focusing on a specific body of literature involving women intensely associated with scientific pursuits, and examining selected noncanonical writings, Murphy demonstrates how these works informed the ""Woman Question"" by reinforcing or rejecting presumed truths about gender and science. Some of these texts offer lucid insights into the ways in which women were defined, marginalized, and excluded. In his novel ""Two on a Tower"", Thomas Hardy presented science as a masculine realm threatened by female intrusion, while Wilkie Collins ""in Heart and Science"" depicted a woman interested in science as a villainous schemer who falls far short of the Victorian ideal of femininity. And although Charles Reade's novel ""A Woman-Hater"" was more sympathetic in its portrayal of a female physician, it continued to reinforce Victorian stereotypes. Murphy also shows us the poetry of science enthusiast Constance Naden, who used the language of the discipline to reflect its marginalization of women. She uses the travel memoirs of botanical painter, Marianne North, which reveal her attempts to achieve a gender-neutral voice to position her work within the Victorian scientific realm. These close readings show how prejudices about women's intellectual inferiority infiltrated popular culture.

Jonell Patricia Murphy has been a Substitute teacher (off and on) for Newark Public Schools for over twenty years. One day, as some seniors were signing their names on her Attendance sheet, she noticed that almost everyone was printing their names--one letter at a time! When she mentioned this to another teacher she was informed that cursive writing is no longer taught in schools, and hadn't been for a long time. So, Looping Letters was created. It is a fun, easy, self-improvement workbook for teenagers to practice and learn at their own pace. The instructions are written in print. There are images and pictures throughout the book that today's teenagers and younger children will recognize and enjoy. In a few short pages, they can finally master the art of cursive writing and gain another valuable skill that will support them up the ladder of success. Murphy has a degree in English/Journalism from Rutgers University, and a paralegal certificate from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
