Blurb/Shorttext:
The purpose of science education is not exclusively the production of new scientists. It is also the development of scientifically literate minds with the capacity to understand issues of increasing importance and complexity within a global society. These dual purposes of science education are not well-served when educators ignore the abundant evidence that students are becoming less interested in science and overlook those factors that influence students' attitudes toward science. This book examines the psychological constructs of interest in science classrooms. Of particular emphasis is how student attitudes toward science are altered through the use of different pedagogical approaches. This analysis is framed by research in the field of interest and examines factors that enhance student interest. Useful to both educators and communicators of science, this examination identifies effective ways of increasing interest in science as well as practical strategies associated with greater ease of science learning and science achievement.
