Enhancing Learning with Effective Practical Science begins with an exploration of the reasons why practical work is often less effective than it could be. It provides 72 full and clear lesson guides for effective practical lessons in biology, chemistry and physics for students aged between 11 and 16. Each lesson guide presents the practical work to be undertaken, the apparatus and materials required and the ideas to be explored. Health and safety issues are also covered.

Essential reading for trainee science teachers, and practising teachers looking to enhance their teaching through effective use of practical work, especially if teaching outside their science specialism.
