How Science Works provides student and practising teachers with a comprehensive introduction to one of the most dramatic changes to the secondary science curriculum. Underpinned by the latest research in the field, it explores the emergence and meaning of How Science Works and reviews major developments in pedagogy and practice. With chapters structured around three key themes - why How Science Works, what it is and how to teach it – expert contributors explore issues including the need for curriculum change, arguments for scientific literacy for all, school students’ views about science, what we understand about scientific methods, types of scientific enquiry, and, importantly, effective pedagogies and their implications for practice. Aiming to promote discussion and reflection on the ways forward for this new and emerging area of the school science curriculum, it considers: teaching controversial issues in science argumentation and questioning for effective teaching enhancing investigative science and developing reasoned scientific judgments the role of ICT in exploring How Science Works teaching science outside the classroom. How Science Works is a source of guidance for all student, new and experienced teachers of secondary science, interested in investigating how the curriculum can provide creativity and engagement for all school students.

Classroom-based Interventions Across Subject Areas explores cutting-edge educational research that has real potential to support the improvement of classroom practice. Written by expert researchers and practitioners, it provides empirically tested and theory-based approaches that practitioners can use to improve learning in classroom settings. This edited volume provides examples of classroom-based interventions in English, mathematics, science, languages, history, and geography. Taking as its basis research which has been conducted in actual classrooms with close collaboration between researchers and practitioners, this text will help researchers and practitioners understand how and why interventions can be successful or not. The text further considers the broad theoretical and practical issues that derive from intervention studies, including the nature of collaboration between researchers and teachers and ways of adapting effective classroom-based interventions for use in different contexts. Offering insight into the methodology behind successful classroom-based interventions, this text will be essential reading for students of education, trainee teachers, and all those concerned with how educational research can impact on teaching and learning.

Die Evolutionstheorie hat sich in den letzten 150 Jahren von einer speziellen naturwissenschaftlichen zur universellen wissenschaftlichen Theorie entwickelt. Sie bezieht Phänomene von der Lebensentstehung bis zu den kulturellen und geistigen Entwicklungen des Menschen ein. Die Evolutionstheorie ist das Fundament der modernen Biologie. Dennoch ist sie bis heute die vermutlich umstrittenste Theorie der Menschheitsgeschichte. Ein großer Teil der Menschen in aller Welt lehnt sie bis heute vehement ab. Das Buch nähert sich diesem Phänomen, indem es einerseits einen interdisziplinären Einblick in die evolutionäre Forschung ermöglicht und damit Wissenschaftler aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen die Möglichkeit bietet, über ihre Forschung zu berichten. Andererseits schildern Forscher aus verschiedenen europäischen Ländern die spezifischen Schwierigkeiten bezüglich der Akzeptanz der Evolutionstheorie.

Developed within a network of Canadian researchers and their community partners, this book is a collection of case studies that explore the learning that people do through community engagement. The crucial work here explores learning that is organized by the learners themselves, collectively, rather than as individuals. Reflecting the contributors’ political priorities, the volume covers groups that are highly marginalized in our society and moves on to examine more mainstream citizens.

This book takes up the challenge of examining the thorniest educational issue from a global perspective. It contributes to the evidence-based conversation among policy makers, educators, and researchers around the world about what works to improve the education outcomes and what can make a bigger difference for the education of diverse students. The eleven countries included — the United Kingdom, Austria, Canada, the United States, South Africa, Ghana, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand are unique, and yet overlap in the sense that they all face similar challenges of teaching diverse students. The authors, being education and cultural insiders, discuss country-specific policies, efforts, and best practices in the education of diverse students; share stories of success and failure; and explore current best practices from global, social, political, and economic perspectives. Built on previous theories and research, it describes diverse students’ experiences in the global and information age, and searches for effective policies and practices that help these students to perform better in school and in life. Readers are forced to step outside of their own experiences and commonly held beliefs about education. Conscious recognition that there are other ways of doing things may result in new approaches that we have not explored before. We hope the insights, lessons, and conclusions drawn from examining this pressing education issue from a global perspective will help nations to better understand and deal with it in their own educational system.
