BOOK EXCERPT:

This edited volume is a state-of-the-art comparison of primary science education across six East-Asian regions; namely, the People’s Republic of China, Republic of Korea, Republic of China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, and Singapore. While news of educational policies, classroom teaching, assessment, and other educational innovations here often surface in the international media, this book brings together for the first time relevant information regarding educational systems and strategies in primary science in East Asia. Above all, it is a readable yet comprehensive survey—readers would have an accurate sense of what has been accomplished, what has not worked so well, and what remains to be done. Invited experts in comparative education research and/or science education also provide commentary by discussing common themes across the six regions. These types of critical synoptic reviews add much value by enabling readers to understand broad commonalities and help synthesize what must surely be a bewildering amount of very interesting albeit confusing body of facts, issues, and policies. Education in East Asia holds many lessons (both positive and negative) to offer to the rest of the world to which this volume is a timely contribution to the literature.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Gifted education has come to be regarded as a key national programme in many coutnries, and gifted education in science disciplines is now being recognised to be of major importance for economic and technological development. Despite these initiatives and developments internationally, there are very few discussions on gifted education in science drawing upon practices and experiences in different national contexts. In support of an international dialogue between researchers and practitioners, often working within isolated traditions, this book offers information on key influential approaches to science education for gifted learners and surveys current policy and practice from a diverse range of educational contexts. The volume offers an informative introduction for those new to studying gifted science education, as well as supporting the development of the field by offering examples of critical thinking about key issues, and accounts of the influences at work within education systems and the practical complexities of providing science education for the gifted. The contributions draw upon a variety of research approaches to offer insights into the constraints and affordancxes of working within particular policy contexts, and the strengths and challenges inherent in different approaches to practice. Chapters include: Teaching science to the gifted in English state schools: locating a compromised 'gifted & talented' policy within its systemic context Models of education for science talented adolescents in the United States: Past, present, and likely future trends Navigating the shifting terrain between policy and practice for gifted learners in Tanzania Science education for female indigenous gifted students in the Mexican context Gifted Science Education in the Context of Japanese Standardization This book will appeal to scholars, practitioners and policy makers who are in the field of gifted science education.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book describes a comparative study of the primary science learning objectives (from the cognitive domain) in the curriculum of six high-achieving East Asian states — mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and Singapore. Specifically, the authors use one of the most widely accepted and useful tools in curriculum research — revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. This is the first time that such findings from all six states have been published in one place and the results are valuable for policymakers, educators and researchers around the globe. Our new English translations of the primary science learning objectives in China, Taiwan and Korea will also greatly facilitate future analyses of these curricula.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book is the sixth in a series of publications on the subject of integrated science teaching and is based on the proceedings of a consultation meeting held on the theme "Recent Developments in Integrated Science Teaching Worldwide". The meeting was organized by the Australian National Commission for Unesco, in cooperation with the International Council of Associations in Science Education (ICASE) and with the Australian Science Teachers' Association. The intention of the book is to reflect how far integrated science teaching had spread around the world. The chapters in the first part of this book describe key issues in integrated science and broad trends in the approaches to integrated science teaching worldwide. They include the conclusions of five working groups set up during the meeting to discuss the key issues in the following areas: (1) content (developments in science and technology and their implications for science education); (2) curriculum and resource materials; (3) teaching, learning, and assessment; (4) equipment and science teaching facilities; and (5) teacher education. The following articles are included in eight chapters of Part I: "What Is Integrated Science Teaching: Its Beginnings and Its Place Today" (Dennis G. Chisman); "Reflections on the Development of Integrated Science Teaching Projects for 4-16 Year Olds" (Kerst Th. Boersma, and others); "The Integration of Science Teaching through Science-Technology-Society Courses" (John Holman); and "Teacher Behaviours Which Facilitate Integrated Science Teaching" (Ronald J. Bonnstetter). The second part of the book describes national and regional developments in the teaching of integrated science in Africa, the Arab States, Asia and the South Pacific, Europe and North America, Latin America and the Caribbean; and is based largely on the reports and discussions at the meeting. The third part contains some examples of topics and modules of integrated science courses taken from recent courses in Botswana, the Caribbean, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Sierra Leone, and the United Kingdom. The fourth part is an annotated bibliography (over 370 entries) which attempts to sample literature relevant to integrated science. (KR)
