On Teaching Science free pdf Focusing on solutions specific to science and math education both for K-12 and college, this book explores how students learn in general and helps teachers develop successful techniques for the classroom. 'On Teaching Science' is a short, practical guide to key principles and strategies that will help students learn in any subject at any level but with special focus on the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects. Though aimed primarily at current and future teachers, the ideas covered will be of interest to anyone involved in education, including parents, school administrators, policymakers, community leaders, and research scientists. The book describes how important it is to instill the notion that learning requires study and effort- presents big picture ideas about teaching- provides general suggestions for successful teaching- and includes pedagogical strategies for success in science teaching. With a combination of personal experience and research-based studies to discuss the current state of education in the United States, the author shows how it can be improved through both individual educators and systemic changes.
