Learning science involves learning its language. Many studies have shown that the language barrier is one of the biggest barriers to learning science. This dictionary has been written in order to help learning of all ages, tackle that barrier. Every teacher and every pupil learning science will be able to make good use it so will their parents. The dictionary covers all the key words and terms of the National Curriculum of England and Wales, and large parts of the science curriculum in other countries, such as Scotland, Australia and the USA. The words to be included have been carefully selected by examining curriculum documents and by consulting over 30 teachers to decide on the final list.Each word is explained in full (not just defined) and illustrations are used to help give it meaning and sense. Many of the words are related to each other.About the AuthorJerry Wellington taught in Tower Hamlets, East London before joining the University of Sheffield as a lecturer in science education.
