Synopsis

Creative teaching has the potential to inspire deep learning, using inventive activities and stimulating contexts that can capture the imagination of children.

Key aspects of science teaching are discussed, including:

planning for teaching and learningassessing primary sciencecross-curricular approachesthe intelligent application of technologysustainability education outdoor learning

Coverage is supported by illustrative examples, encouraging you to look at your own teaching practice, your local community and environment, your own interests and those of your children to deepen your understanding of what constitutes good science teaching in primary schools.

This is essential reading for students on primary initial teacher education courses, on both university-based (BEd, BA with QTS, PGCE) and schools-based (School Direct, SCITT) routes into teaching.

Dr Roger Cutting is an Associate Professor in Education at the Institute of Education at Plymouth University in England. Roger has a background in science research, but also has wide and complimentary experience of teaching science at many levels across the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors. Now at Plymouth University he contributes to a range of courses with particular emphasis on science education and sustainability, and has recently been awarded a number of teaching fellowships and nominations for teaching excellence. He is Programme Leader for the Masters in Learning for Sustainability and is an active member of the Learning Outside Formal Education (LOFE) research group. He is also a Research Fellow for the Centre for Sustainable Futures. Dr Orla Kelly is a Lecturer in Social, Environmental and Scientific Education in the Church of Ireland College of Education in Dublin, with responsibility for science, history and geography education on the BEd. Prior to this appointment in 2013, she was the subject leader for science at Plymouth University. She was appointed as a Lecturer in Science Education in 2006 and the beginnings of a productive and enjoyable research partnership with Roger Cutting began when they were awarded a Plymouth University Teaching Fellowship. It was also at Plymouth University that she had the opportunity to share her passion for drama, teaching it to students on both the BEd and PGCE. As a qualified speech and drama teacher and a chemistry graduate Orla has long been aware of the perceived tension between the Creative Arts and Science. Her PhD research was centred around problem-based learning as an innovative approach to teaching practical chemistry. Her passion and interest in innovative teaching approaches continues and guides her research and practice. She is a member of the advisory panel for Chemistry Education Research and Practice and is a regular reviewer. She has a number of peer-reviewed publications and has presented widely at a variety of international conferences.
