Reframing Education's Conversation: Science


Edited By Lynn A. Bryan and Kenneth Tobin

13 Questions: Reframing Education’s Conversation: Science examines thirteen critical questions confronting contemporary science education and a dynamic and evolving universe threatened by issues of sustainability and disharmony. The world’s leading scholars in science education utilize cutting-edge theories and analyses to illuminate possible pathways in a world threatened by global warming, mass extinctions, and pervasive conflicts. These provocative responses to some of the most difficult questions facing science education to date are intended to provoke, expand, and enlighten readers about possibilities for transforming and enhancing the social and physical worlds we inhabit and for which we are stewards.

The sections of 13 Questions address science curriculum; power and science education; quality of science teachers; quality of science students; quality of science teacher education; equity; language; religion; race; families; culture of science and science education; political issues and science education; and bold visions for science education. The book is international in scope and shows value for difference in the perspectives, values, and theoretical underpinnings of authors.
