Description: Science Teachingexplains why it is essential for teachers know something about the history and philosophy of science and to include these topics in classroom science instruction. The history and philosophy of science play important roles in many of the issues that science educators need to address: the goals of science education; what constitutes an appropriate science curriculum for all students; what integrated science is; how scientific literacy can be promoted; how science should be taught in traditional cultures; and the conflict which can occur between science curriculum and deep-seated religious or cultural values and knowledge.Through its historical perspective, this book reveals to science education students and researchers the foundations of scientific knowledge and its method. It provides examples of classroom teaching and develops useful arguments on constructivism, multicultural science education and teacher education. Fully updated, the 20thAnniversary Edition of this classic text includes 3 entirely new chapters: Science and Culture; Science, Worldviews, and Religion; History and Philosophy of Science and Inquiry Teaching.
