  • Advances understandings of how to promote scientific literacy
  • Provides new insights for teaching science in the context of socio-scientific issues (SSI)
  • Presents the field's most inclusive collection of classroom-based SSI research projects Presents a new empirically based framework for SSI based education Features leading authors from eight countries across four continents

Socio-scientific issues (SSI) are open-ended, multifaceted social issues with conceptual links to science. They are challenging to negotiate and resolve, and they create ideal contexts for bridging school science and the lived experience of students. This book presents the latest findings from the innovative practice and systematic investigation of science education in the context of socio-scientific issues.

Socio-scientific Issues in the Classroom: Teaching, Learning and Research focuses on how SSI can be productively incorporated into science classrooms and what SSI-based education can accomplish regarding student learning, practices and interest. It covers numerous topics that address key themes for contemporary science education including scientific literacy, goals for science teaching and learning, situated learning as a theoretical perspective for science education, and science for citizenship. It presents a wide range of classroom-based research projects that offer new insights for SSI-based education. Authored by leading researchers from eight countries across four continents, this book is an important compendium of syntheses and insights for researchers, teachers and curriculum designers eager to advance the SSI agenda.
