Reflective reader: secondary science

This reader guides trainee teachers through challenging and topical theory, in order to develop their reflective learning and practice. It contains key extracts from classic and current writing, each accompanied by support materials including an analysis, pre- and post-reading activities, links to the QTS Standards, practical implications, and further reading.

Trainees are helped to engage with theoretical concepts, reflect on their own understanding and principles, and apply this to classroom practice. Closely linked to the Secondary Professional Studies Reflective Reader, this book builds on much of that material, while providing a unique science perspective.
