The launch of the New ASE Guide to Secondary Science

From the editors...

We very much hope that all the science teachers and educators who read this book will be encouraged to reflect on their own practice and to use some of the ideas and suggestions in this book to develop their practice further. Many thanks to all the authors, not only for their valuable contributions, but also for the enjoyable and stimulating discussions we have had about what makes good science teaching and learning.

NEW for September 2018 - Bringing together expertise from over 50 practiioners.

The fourth edition of this flagship ASE title aims to be a handbook to support science teachers and those working with them in and out of school, both at the start of their teaching careers and in years to come.  The Guide covers a wide range of topics, from considering why and how we might teach science, to engaging and motivating the diverse student community with whom we work, to how to mentor new colleagues. Each chapter sets out its main theme and explores the implications for teachers and others, often with illustrations of classroom practice. The chapters have further references to publications and websites for information, ideas and resources.
