Towards a Renewed Pedagogy for Science Education

Author: Albert Zeyer,Regula Kyburz-Graber

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 904813949X

Category: Science

Page: 197

Health and the environment are important learning areas in science education and their significance is growing. Not only do they have high social relevance, but they are also close to students’ interests and needs. They provide many opportunities to unlock science with questions that are personally relevant to boys and girls and that inspire them to engage in science. This book contains a selection of papers from prominent professionals in science, health and environmental education, who reflect on science education, each from their specific point of view. The core idea is to present well-founded perspectives on how science education may benefit from challenges stemming from both health and environmental education. Specific reasons are discussed as to why these two areas are particularly legitimized to challenge science education, and their potential impact on a revision of science education is evaluated. A new pedagogy for science¦environment¦health that yields interesting and relevant science education for students and teachers, and addresses the grand challenges of this century: what an attractive and rewarding project! The book will motivate teachers, teacher educators and science education researchers to take part in this on-going project.

Der beste Freund: Tommo wächst mit seinem grossen Bruder Charlie anfangs des 20. Jahrhunderts in England auf. Nach dem Tod des Vaters ist Charlie der Beschützer und Freund von Tommo. Zusammen mit der Freundin Molly und dem behinderten Bruder Big Joe verbringen sie eine idyllische Kindheit, obwohl die Mutter für den Colonel arbeiten muss, um die Familie durchzubringen. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs müssen sie zur Armee. In den belgischen Schützengräben versuchen sie die Deutsche Armee zurückzudrängen. Als nach einem schweren Angriff Tommo verletzt wird, bleibt Charlie bei ihm im Schützengraben und weigert sich, dem widersinnigen Befehl des gehassten Sergeants, erneut anzugreifen, Folge zu leisten. Charlie wird in einem eilends durchgeführten Prozess zum Tode verurteilt. Tommos Erinnerungen sind ein eindrückliches Zeitdokument, das versucht, die durch ein fragwürdiges Erschiessungskommando getöteten Männer zu rehabilitieren. Ab 14 Jahren, gut, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser.
