Handbook of College Science Teaching
Joel J. Mintzes, William H. Leonard 2006 National Science Teachers Association
This handbook, by the National Science Teachers Association, offers models of teaching and learning that go beyond the typical lecture-laboratory format and provide rationales for new practices in the college classroom. The 38 chapters—each written by experienced, award-winning science faculty—are organized into eight sections, including attitudes and motivations (including research on science anxiety), active learning, factors that affect learning, innovative teaching approaches (such as the use of primary literature, fieldwork, and inquiry labs), the use of technology for both teaching and student research, and special challenges, such as teaching effectively to culturally diverse or learning disabled students. The Handbook is ideal for graduate teaching assistants in need of a solid introduction to teaching science, senior faculty and graduate coordinators in charge of training new faculty and grad students, and mid-career professors in search of reinvigoration.
