ASE Guide to Research in Science Education (9780863574290)

For professionals who want to understand the research that informs the development of science teaching

Editor: John Oversby

This guide gives easy access to research that has informed classroom practice and provides support for those
wishing to conduct their own research. The writers of this book
firstly review robust and reliable research evidence, topic by
topic, that informs the development of science teaching and will help teachers make decisions about the learning experience they offer to their students.

The second part of the book focuses on how teachers can set
about doing their own research, on topics pertinent to their
classrooms. These chapters provide practical guidance on the
stages of a research project and will help teachers ensure that
their research is rigorous and reliable, and that it will be valuable
to them and to the research community.

This ASE Guide to Research in Science Education provides
critical consideration of:
learning and teaching the science curriculum
what we know of students' ideas about science
the assessment and attainment of students and
is a valuable resource for teachers of science in training and
their early careers, with many working at Masters level.

The book is a product of some members of the ASE Research
Committee. The authors are drawn from a wide cross-section of
expert ASE members; they are all committed to and experienced
in developing science education.
