What makes for a good teacher has been the topic of many academic studies. This book seeks to address this question as it pertains to outstanding science teaching. Effective science teaching demands a unique skill set and personality in order to capture students' attention and curiosity. Although many variables have been studied in this area, including methods, pedagogy, and best practices, not much has been revealed concerning traits of successful science teachers. What is different about that science teacher who made you fall in love with science so that you changed your career path as a result? Is is something we can identify and measure? And is it something we can embrace during this standards-driven, high-stakes test mentality educational climate we currently find ourselves in? This book uncovers those dimensions of exceptional science teaching in order to answer these questions. -- Back Cover.
