Synopsis

Opportunities for Science in the Primary School by Alan Peacock

This volume examines the reality of science in primary classrooms. It offers a balanced comparison of models, content and approaches and stresses the importance to children of global issues, such as environment, health and energy. Through an extended case study, the book raises questions of current concern and suggests solutions which take account of the need for equality and justice in science opportunities. The book encourages teachers to accept their own tentative ideas and to refine these as a means of professional development.

Reviews

...Written in an easy, fluent style and links research with practice in a way which is not contrived. ...it is realistic about the political and economic pressures which influence teachers, but manages to motive the reader to feel empowered to overcome these constraints and provides practical suggestions for ways forward. New Era Commendable in its attempt to broaden the scope for primary teachers, to make science relevant to learners
