About the Book

The Art of Teaching Science emphasizes a humanistic, experiential, and constructivist approach to teaching and learning, and integrates a wide variety of pedagogical learning tools. These tools involve inquiry and experimentation, reflection through writing and discussion, as well as experiences with students, science curriculum and pedagogy. Becoming a science teacher is a creative process. This innovative textbook encourages students to construct ideas about science teaching through their interactions with peers, professionals, and instructors, and through hands-on, minds-on activities designed to foster a collaborative, thoughtful learning environment.
