The  book presents key perspectives on teaching and learning science in  India. It offers adaptive expertise to teachers and educators through a  pedagogic content knowledge (PCK) approach. Using cases and episodes  from Indian science classrooms to contextualise ideas and practices, the  volume discusses the nature of science, and aspects of assessments and  evaluations for both process skills and conceptual understanding of the  subject. It examines the significance of science education at school  level and focuses on meaningful learning and development of scientific  and technological aptitude. The chapters deal with topics from physics,  chemistry and biology at the middle- and secondary-school levels, and  are designed to equip student-teachers with theoretical and practical  knowledge abilities about science, science learning and the abilities to  teach these topics along with teaching.

The book  draws extensively from research on science education and teacher  education and shifts away from knowledge transmission to the active  process of constructivist teaching-learning practices. The authors use  illustrative examples to highlight flexible planning for inclusive  classrooms. Based on studies on cognitive and developmental psychology,  pedagogical content knowledge of science, socio-cultural approaches to  learning science, and the history and philosophy of science, the book  promotes an understanding of science characterized by empirical  criteria, logical arguments and sceptical reviews.

With  its accessible style, examples, exercises and additional references, it  will be useful for students and teachers of science, science educators,  BEd and MEd programmes for education, secondary and higher secondary  school teachers, curriculum designers and developers of science. It will  interest research institutes, non-governmental organisations,  professionals and public and private sector bodies involved in science  outreach, science education and teaching and learning practices.
