The authors of this book, leaders in the fields of cognitive and elementary science, recognize the importance of teaching science to elementary-age children, not only to ensure their success through the school years, but to encourage them to develop a scientific and rational way of thinking.
The focal point of Science Education is an analysis of the role played by four principal factors of the game called "science teaching"-- the teacher, the child, the topics, and the methods. As the debate continues over the failure of our public education system to properly educate children, this important work offers new methods to promote thinking processes, stimulate interest, and resolve problems encountered by teachers. It does so by proposing a theoretical framework for organizing lessons into more interesting, non-rhetorical formats.
