Two Books Every Science Educator Must Read

I meant to post it some time ago and I have forgotten. Nowadays with the amount of online resources it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Yet, not all these resources are created equal. I would like to recommend you two books (published online – free in an electronic format) that I found especially important and interesting for science educators.

1) “How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience and School” John D. Bransford, Ann L. Brown, and Rodney R. Cocking, editors. It also has a sequel “How Students Learn”. The books are published by The National Academy Press. The books are excellent, well written and very useful. I especially like their examples and references. Great start for any science educator.

2) “Science Teaching as a Profession” – a new book by Sheila Tobias. I think all books of Sheila Tobias are must read, but this one is especially relevant for science educators and right now you can download it for free from her web site. I would also recommend “They Are Not Dumb, They Are Different” and “Overcoming Math Anxiety”.
