What should citizens know, value, and be able to do in prepartation for life and work in the 21st century? In The Teaching of Science: 21st Century, renownded educator Rodger Bybee provides the perfect opportunity for science teachers, administrators, curriculum developers, and science teacher educators to reflect on this question. He encourages readers to think about why they teach science and what is important to teach. Only then can they figure out how to teach science. Using his lectures from NSTA conferences as the foundation for the chapters, Bybee addresses topics such as contemporary challenges in science education, curriculum and instruction, inquiry in science teaching, and the development of 21st century skills. He concludes the book with a discussion of the need for leadership and continued reform in science education. With his experience as a leader in science education for the past 30 years, Bybee brings the necessary perspective and background to help members of the science education community better understand the challenges and goals of a science teacher. The Teaching of Science will prove to be the thought-provoking and beneficial reading for all members of the science education community as they seek to help students become informed and engaged citizens in the 21st century.
