This brand new course for Key Stage 3 Science brings together proven approaches to the development of pupils' thinking skills and the requirements of the National Curriculum for Science. It arises directly from the CASE project and helps pupils to 'think about their thinking' whilst developing their knowledge and understanding of science within the context of the QCA Scheme of Work. The order in which specific skills are introduced is based on many years' research into pupils' cognitive development. Arises directly from the CASE project and cultivates a thinking skills approach to science. Highlights issues raised by the Science Strategy. Uses the latest ideas for effective learning in line with pupils' cognitive development. Prepares pupils for assessment of Scl. Provides methods to promote peer interaction. Highlights the use of mental modelling in science. Those already involved with CASE will easily be able to use this course to approach the science curriculum through cognitive acceleration methods. For teachers unfamiliar with the CASE approach it will provide an integrated route into developing the thinking skills of their pupils. Thinking Through Science 3 Red Pupil's Book c
