Book Description

9 Nov 2005 1412908728 978-1412908726 Fourth Edition
`Professor Harlen has, once again, provided the leading text on primary science. This eminently readable book sets out a clear account of our understanding of learning, teaching and assessment and, through the skilful use of examples, explores the implications of this for science teachers of pupils aged five to 12. By emphasizing the importance of research evidence and the way in which it should underpin practice, this new edition challenges everyone involved in science education to reflect again on whether we are providing the most appropriate learning opportunities for our pupils. It is certainly a book which will be highly recommended, referred to on many occasions and used extensively' - Dr Derek Bell, Chief Executive, The Association for Science Education

This thoroughly revised and completely up-to-date new edition provides an excellent theoretical framework for teaching science that is firmly grounded in classroom practice and covers all stages of education for students aged five to 12 years.

The author details a constructivist view of learning, which recognizes that children already have ideas about the world in which they live, and gives advice on how teachers can help children to develop their understanding and change their perception to a more scientific view. A particular feature is the focus on formative assessment as a framework for discussion on how to help students develop their understanding, enquiry skills and positive attitudes to scientific investigation.

The wide range of topics covered include:

The nature of students' learning in science

The goals of science education

Gathering and interpreting information about students' 's ideas

Helping development of scientific ideas

Gathering and interpreting evidence of students' enquiry skills and attitudes

Strategies for helping development of students' qnquiry skills and attitudes

The learner's role in learning

Summarising and reporting learning

Motivating learning

Teachers and children's questions

Resources for learning science

Managing science in the school

Each chapter features useful summaries, points for reflection and further reading, making this acclaimed book indispensable reading for all primary and practitioners and students who want a book that will authoritatively inform, inspire and instruct their science teaching.

Product Description

Review

`The power of this book is that it provides a theoretical framework about how children learn science and practical suggestions for how to apply this knowledge to the classroom. Harlen brings her exceptional insights about teaching and learning to weave a rich tapestry that illuminates the use of the process skills of inquiry to develop conceptual understanding and the critical role formative assessment plays to support this endeavor.

This book is a "must-read" for participants in our inquiry and assessment workshops' - Lynn Rankin, Director, Exploratorium Institute for Inquiry

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Condition 21 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was meant to be in "good condition" however there were coffee stains inside, post it notes and the spine was ripped. I was very disappointed with the condition of it and wished that I had bought the book "new" for a couple more pound.
