New edition of Teaching Secondary Physics

Teaching secondary Physics

The Association for Science Education has recently published the third edition of the Teaching Secondary Physics guide. 

A staple of many science teacher training courses, the text is aimed at those teaching up to age 16 and is described by the ASE as “the trusted teachers’ guide for NQTs, non-specialists and experienced teachers”. Chapters cover a broad range of areas and include some thoughts on energy that are the culmination of many years discussion and refinement.

The IOP education team has been heavily involved including Rachel Hartley (Professional Practice Lead), Stuart Farmer (Education Manager for Scotland) and Charles Tracy (Head of Education). The edition was co-edited by James de Winter (ITE tutor and physics education research contributor to Classroom Physics) and also includes contributions from Carol Davenport (Director of NUSTEM and former IOP VicePresident for Education), Tom Norris (former IOP coach) and Stories from Physics author Richard Brock.
