Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807738751, Hardcover)

A veteran science teacher and researcher raises important questions as she addresses the ways that teaching can and should be reflective practice. Throughout the text she addresses the question, "How can teachers continue to evolve and rethink their teaching methods?" Tracking six prospective biology teachers from their university training through their first years in the classroom, the author uses her own observations as well as interviews and direct quotes from the teachers to record not only their growth, but to reflect on her own development as well. Both novice and experienced teachers should be able to connect their own teaching journeys to those presented here. The author's insider perspective and the inclusion of background on advances in science, learning theories and the role of lab teaching all make this is a useful book not only for science teachers, policy makers and administrators, but also for educators in any field seeking to improve how students - and teachers - learn.
