Making Sense of Secondary Science

Making Sense of Secondary Science

Young learners bring to the classroom knowledge and ideas about many aspects of the natural world constructed from their experiences of education and from outside school. These ideas contribute to subsequent learning, and research has shown that the teaching of science is unlikely to be effective unless it takes learners' perspectives into account. Making Sense of Secondary Science provides a concise, accessible summary of international research into learners' ideas about science, presenting evidence-based insight into the conceptions that learners hold, before and even despite teaching. With expert summaries from across the science domains, it covers research findings from life and living processes, materials and their properties and physical processes.--from book cover
