Through the use of case studies and commentaries by senior scholars in the field, this book provides student-teachers with personal and professional insights into some key science education "dilemmas". It discusses dilemmas about science; the nature of science; laws of science; teaching ethics; gender; target students; culture and ethnicity; textbooks; student reports; laboratories; classrooms; teaching out of field; and curriculum change.

'The main value of the book is as a means of raising such issues for reflective discussion and exploration on Master's and ITT courses. For if good teaching is a reflective process, something which requires the ability to stand and stare, then this book offers a valuable means of initiating such action.' - School Science Review
