Product Information

  • To think and observe like a scientist is to be curious - curious about the natural and physical world.
  • Crucially, curious minds lead to the scientific discoveries and innovations that benefit economic, environmental, social and cultural wellbeing.
  • To support teachers in the productive and rewarding task of developing curious scientific minds, this series harnesses SOLO Taxonomy - an accessible, robust way of making learning visible to both teacher and students - in combination with current theories on how students learn and effective pedagogies.
  • This book establishes the foundations by showing how to access learning through the science capabilities, collaboration, citizenship and community rather than by framing young people as a captive audience to "edu-tain" or "deliver to". It explores how to use SOLO Taxonomy to think scientifically in relation to each of the science capabilities. Here you will find a strong model for what it takes to build students' citizen-centric scientific curiosity when working for a social good.
  • Building on these ideas this book zooms in on the specific science capability of gathering and interpreting data. It offers a series of simple paired experiments that increase in complexity and involve contexts that are familiar and important to students. Along with each experiment is in-depth information for teachers, such as the rationale behind the experiment, key steps to build observation competencies and questions to prompt scientific observations and next steps.
  • Also identified are relevant SOLO maps to support scientific literacy and SOLO self-assessment rubrics for formative and summative assessment.
