Dominant theories about primary science contend that knowledge is the key. Ovens challenges this view, showing, through case studies, that inquiry and reflection play a significant part in the learning process. This applies to pupils, teachers and teacher educators. Taking curiosity as a pre-condition for good learning, Ovens shows that it is possible to increase the desire to learn more and learn better, to improve confidence in the ability to inquire, to imbue pupils with the courage to seek improvement, to place trust in collaborative processes, to raise awareness of significant detail and to encourage open-mindedness.

Uniquely, two levels of support are offered: · practical, evidence-based guidance on key classroom issues � including relationships, behaviour, curriculum planning, teaching strategies and assessment processes; · routes to deeper forms of expertise, including evidence-informed 'principles' and 'concepts' to support in-depth understanding of teacher expertise. Andrew Pollard, former Director of the UK's Teaching and Learning Research Programme, led development of the book, with support from primary and secondary specialists from the University of Cambridge, UK. Reflective Teaching in Schools is part of a fully integrated set of resources for primary and secondary education. Readings for Reflective Teaching in Schools directly complements and extends the chapters in this book. Providing a compact and portable library, it is particularly helpful in school-based teacher education.

Teacher professional development is usually directed and governed by three agents: politics, pedagogy and innovation. The book begins by considering existing literature and ideas on teacher professional development. Chapter two briefly outlines some of the issues in science education that are of relevance to primary school science while also examining the PIPS model of teacher professional development. Subsequent chapters focus on the methodology employed by the project including details of the evaluation, as the data collected was instrumental in determining influential facets of the project. The following chapters explore the notion of readiness, risk, reflection, recognition, resource and relevance. These were deemed to be key elements that contributed to the success of the project in terms of promoting professional development and in terms of seeing tangible change in classroom practice. There is a short chapter which outlines some of the other project findings and the book concludes with a chapter on the need and challenge for dynamic teacher professional development programmes that work in partnership with teachers rather than deliver things for teachers.

Tasks in Primary Mathematics Teacher Education is intended to advance relevant research and innovative international practices in the preparation and professional development of mathematics teachers. Emerging from discussion at the ICMI study on teacher professional development, this volume, focused on primary and elementary teachers, culls a richness that can only be found by gathering wisdom from varied experiences around the world. The choice of tasks, and the associated pedagogies, is a key aspect of teaching and learning mathematics. Arguing that what students learn is largely defined by the tasks they are given, several major themes are presented. One such major strand, the form, function and focus of tasks, is discussed throughout several chapters, offering analysis, discussion of implementation, and exemplars of a broader category of illustrative techniques for developing critical understanding.
