  4. 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.

  7. Inside the Black Box: Science

    Science provides the means by which learners can interact with the world around them and develop ideas about the phenomena they experience. To be able to learn science in this way, students need help in developing process skills to investigate, and communication skills to question and discuss findings. The specific aim of Inside the Black Box: Science is the improvement of science education, so ideas are put in the context of the aims and expectations of science teaching. The book sets out in detail the research findings on four main ways of practising formative assessment found to be both workable and productive with teachers of science, and it shows teachers how to develop formative work within a science faculty in a school.

  9. Inside the Black Box

    Assessment for learning has long been recognised as a key factor in raising students' standards of achievement, yet many teachers in Australia still struggle to strike a balance between formative and summative assessments. This revised Australian edition aims to help our nation's educators improve their assessment practice by offering easy-to-read advice on how to implement the key techniques within formative assessment - questioning, feedback, and peer- and self -assessment. The philosophy of the Black Box series is that formative assessment is considerably more than the sum of a series of handy tips and techniques; rather, it is about creating a learning culture within the classroom that enables the student to become independent and effective learners.
