Part of the series Oxford University Press - Teacher Education.
Connecting with Science Education, second edition, supports pre-service teachers as they enter the professional world by connecting theory to practice. It meets the requirements of the Australian Curriculum while incorporating STEM and Indigenous science knowledge; and has a balanced coverage of biological, physical and chemical sciences, with some mathematics. With plenty of practical classroom-based activities, this new edition encourages pre-service teachers to be creative in their teaching and to stimulate curiosity about science in themselves and their students.
