  3. Mastery Learning in the Science Classroom: Success for Every Student
    In these pages, Kelly Morgan presents a compelling case for implementing a mastery learning science classroom and then shows us how to do it. Using research-based student performance data, Morgan compiles impressive statistics that support her assertion that 'mastery learning results in improved student learning and motivation'. This book shows educators how to move step-by-step from a traditional classroom to a mastery classroom and describes the challenges and benefits of such an implementation. The book also provides sample worksheets, checklists, a teacher marking grid and helpful additional resources. Learn More

  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.
