Learning in Science brings together accounts of the five influential and groundbreaking Learning in Science Projects, undertaken by the author over a period of twenty years. Offering comprehensive coverage of the findings and implications of the projects, the book offers insight and inspiration at all levels of science teaching and learning, from primary and secondary school science, to teacher development, and issues of classroom assessment.
The book reviews the findings in the light of current science education, and is thematically organised to illuminate continuous and emerging themes and trends, including:
* learning
* pedagogy
* assessment
* Maori and science education
* curriculum development as teacher development
* and research methodology.
Learning in Science will be a valuable resource for science teachers, science teacher educators, science education researchers, curriculum developers and policy makers.

Industry Reviews

'This is is book which will be of interest to teachers and PGCE students who want to extend their own understanding of science education beyond the immediate confines of here and now. It is an 'academic book' with a definite narrative structure...[and tells] an interesting story and one which may give readers pause for thought'
