Taking a refreshingly pragmatic approach, Anne Qualter addresses these challenging issues in this book. Drawing on her own experience as a classroom teacher combined with research undertaken in a wide range of primary classrooms, the author shows that genuinely differentiated primary science is achievable. Using several classroom examples, she argues that differentiation is not simply about categorizing children as more or less able but involves the teacher in complex decisions which take account of the child's understanding and capabilities, their cultural background, gender, linguistic capabilities, interests and a variety of other factors. The book will be invaluable reading for both trainee and practising primary school teachers."@en ;
