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.
