Teacher's Guide to Science and Religion in the Classroom - (Paperback)
About this item
Drawing on the latest research as well as the designs of successful workshops for teachers and for children, there are activities in each chapter that have been shown to help children understand why science and religion do not necessarily conflict. The book highlights children’s interest in the so-called "Big Questions" that bridge science and religion and responds to the research finding that most children are missing ideas that are key to an explanation of why science and religion can be harmonious.
The book explores key concepts and ideas including:
- Nature of science
- Power and limits of science
- Evolution, genes and human improvement
- Miracles, natural disasters and mystery
- Profiles of scientists, including Galileo and Newton
A Teacher’s Guide to Science and Religion is an essential companion for preservice and practising teachers, providing session plans and pedagogic strategies, together with a cohesive framework, that will support teachers in fostering children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.
