Description

An accessible and authoritative approach to effective science teaching, this text is the work of 16 contributors who each employ a single metaphor that will resonate with readers-that science education can and should be considered a game of sorts. Because metaphor has been demonstrated to be a potent tool for learning a novel concept in science, the authors use the universality of games and sports to educate teachers about science teaching. Each author has carefully woven a game or sports metaphor into his/her chapter and supplemented it with a quotation pertinent to the theme. Many of this book's contributors were involved in the development and draft review of the National Science Education Standards, and therefore fully appreciate the importance of overtly linking research-based commentary and recommendations to the Standards. -- Provided by publisher
