  12. Models-Based Science Teaching

    Humans perceive the world by constructing mental models - telling a story, interpreting a map, reading a book. Every way we interact with the world involves mental models, whether creating new ones or building on existing models with the introduction of new information. In Models-Based Science Teaching, author and educator Steven Gilbert explores the concept of mental models in relation to the learning of science and how we can apply this understanding when we teach science. Practising science teachers at all levels who want to explore new and better ways to frame and model science will find value in this book. Rather than advocating a rigid curriculum, Gilbert asserts that models-based science teaching embraces the creativity inherent in science and in learning.
