What does it take to be a successful teacher? In On Teaching Science, noted educator and astrophysicist Jeffrey Bennett argues that the primary key to success lies in finding ways to get students to put in the study and effort necessary for true learning, and he provides clear and concrete guidance about how to make this happen. Though aimed primarily at science teachers and administrators, the book will prove valuable to anyone concerned with education, including pre-service teachers, current teachers of any subject (both K–12 and college), parents, and policy makers.
