Some blog followers may be interested in a recent discussion-list post of the above title [Hake (2009)]. The abstract reads:
ABSTRACT: Jane Jackson, in a Physoc post of 1 July 2009, called attention to Tobias & Baffert's (2009) FREE online book Science Teaching as a Profession: Why It Isn't, How It Could Be.
I join Jane in urging teachers to (a) read the Tobias/Baffert book, and (b) work collectively to promote increased professionalism in high-school science teaching, one of the country's most vital occupations.
Biologist James Gentile, in a Huffington Post article at http://tinyurl.com/nh2uo2 provides an excellent review of Tobias & Baffert's (2009) book in the context of “Improving Science Teaching in America's Schools."
