Synopsis
Science in secondary schools has tended to be viewed mainly as a 'practical subject', and language and literacy in science education have been neglected. But learning the language of science is a major part of science education: every science lesson is a language lesson, and language is a major barrier to most school students in learning science. This accessible book explores the main difficulties in the language of science and examines practical ways to aid students in retaining, understanding, reading, speaking and writing scientific language.

"This book is a must for teachers in training as well as those colleagues already practicing. The book is just as useful to primary teachers as it is to the targeted market of secondary science teachers." - Len Newton Jnl of Biological Education 20021212
