Analysing exemplary science teaching

'Analysing exemplary science teaching' is a text that seeks to combine educational theory and practice through analysis of a series of teachers' descriptions of 'exemplary' science lessons. The book comprises edited chapters with a common goal; to explore features of high-quality learning and teaching in the sciences.

Early chapters describe classroom practice written by well-respected and insightful classroom teachers and students. Later chapters, authored by scholars of international standing, have a theoretical focus and utilise educational theory to discuss, define and analyse documented practice.

A unique feature is the use of annotated comments to cross-reference descriptions of practice with theoretical analysis. The text has an international flavour; the lessons described and analysed come from middle and secondary schools in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.
