MindTap for Teaching Primary Science Constructively 7e

Keith Skamp, Christine Preston et al.

This FIRST fully digital edition of Teaching Primary Science Constructively helps readers to create effective science learning experiences for primary students by using a constructivist approach to learning. This bestselling title explains the principles of constructivism and their implications for learning and teaching. It also discusses core strategies for developing science understanding and science inquiry processes and skills. Chapters provide research-based ideas for implementing a constructivist approach within a number of content strands. Throughout there are strong links to the key ideas, themes and terminology of the revised Australian Curriculum: Science.

NEW to this edition are the Premium online teaching and learning tools available on the MindTap platform.
Content can be customised to tightly align with existing course curricula and can be integrated into an institution’s online environments. Students connect concepts with their future careers through applied scenario assignments, self-reflection and media rich activities.

A particular priority is the inclusion of STEM content, both integrated throughout the content and emphasised with through pedagogy such as icons, STEM focussed activities and real-life case studies, and the addition of STEM connections to the ‘connecting to the curriculum’ section.
