Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book covers a wide range of topics across the secondary science curriculum in an engaging and accessible way, for both beginning teachers and those who are more experienced. The best

aspect of the book is the inclusion of creative and engaging practical work, which will provide an invaluable resource. I would certainly recommend the book to the PGCE and BSc Secondary Science trainee teachers that I work with' - Dr Tony Liversidge, Science Tutor and University Teaching and Learning Fellow, Edge Hill University, Ormskirk, Lancashire
