August ist anders. Dennoch wünscht er sich, wie alle Jungen in seinem Alter, kein Außenseiter zu sein. Weil er seit seiner Geburt so oft am Gesicht operiert werden musste, ist er noch nie auf eine richtige Schule gegangen. Aber jetzt soll er in die fünfte Klasse kommen. Er weiß, dass die meisten Kinder nicht absichtlich gemein zu ihm sind. Am liebsten würde er gar nicht auffallen. Doch nicht aufzufallen ist nicht leicht, wenn man so viel Mut und Kraft besitzt, so witzig, klug und großzügig ist - wie August.

Wissenschaft, Aberglaube und die Kraft der Phantasie

Ein Regenbogen ist in all seiner Schönheit zweifellos ein beeindruckendes, romantisches Phänomen. Wird der poetische Charakter dieser Naturerscheinung kaputtgemacht, wenn ein Wissenschaftler wie Newton daherkommt und erklärt, dass man es hier mit der Zerlegung von Sonnenlicht in einzelne Spektralfarben zu tun hat? Nein, meint der Autor. Vielmehr zeigt er in diesem hochinteressanten Buch, dass das Vorurteil von der kaltherzigen Wissenschaft unbegründet ist, ja dass das Wunderbare unserer Welt sich gerade dann offenbart, wenn es der Wissenschaft gelingt, komplexe Geheimnisse und damit die Wunder der Natur zu entschlüsseln. Sinnvolle Metaphern und Analogien, die die Fantasie beflügeln und zu über das bloße Verstehen weit hinausreichenden Bildern werden, führen zu einer Poesie in der Naturwissenschaft. Aberglaube und Geschäftemacherei mit Mystizismus prangert er hingegen an, ebenso die für die Wissenschaft schädliche "schlechte poetische Wissenschaft", zu der er übrigens interessante Beispiele aus seinem Fachgebiet, der Evolutionsforschung, anführt.

Elementary Science Methods: A Constructivist Approach

DOWNLOAD NOW »
The text that pioneered a constructivist approach to elementary science teaching is based on two fundamental and complementary ideas: that it's more important for children to learn how to do science than to learn about science, and that elementary science teachers needing to know a great deal of science, but rather should be co-inquirers with their students. ELEMENTARY SCIENCE METHODS: A CONSTRUCTIVIST APPROACH, Sixth Edition, features a wealth of exercises, including open-ended inquiry activities that help teacher candidates construct their own conceptualizations about science content and teaching methods. More than 170 process-oriented, open-ended activities, organized by grade level, can be used to encourage children to develop and perform their own investigations. All activities and much of the text content are clearly linked to National Science Education Standards (NSES) for content, professional development, assessment, and teaching. Also included are suggestions for appropriate children's literature to encourage interdisciplinary learning. The book's website, Education CourseMate, provides valuable tools and resources such as additional activities and video clips that students can use both in their college course and later in elementary science classrooms. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
