Inside science education reform: a history of curricular and policy change

This book centres on developments in science education from the end of World War II to the present day. Oriented toward both practice and policy, the project integrates and compares the views of two of the participants in these developments.

Both authors have played a leading part, throughout their careers, in science education, both in their two countries and internationally.

Each chapter discusses one of the seven main themes: aims and politics, curriculum development, subject-matter boundaries, pedagogy and learning, assessment, educational research, and the teaching profession.
