Transformations: Approaches to College Science Teaching by Deborah Allen and Kimberly Tanner is the latest addition to the W.H. Freeman Scientific Teaching Series of books. Originally edited by Sarah Elgin (Washington Univ, St Louis), this book is a collected series of the popular teaching articles from the open-access, online journal CBE-Life Sciences Education (www.lifescied.org).
The Allen-Tanner essays are practical guides that share insights and strategies for teaching science, appropriate for both the new instructor and those who have been teaching for many years. The book is divided into four parts, which act as overarching themes to the included articles: Part 1- How Can I Engage My Students in Learning?, Part 2- How Can I Know That My Students Are Learning?, Part 3- How Can I Engage All of My Students?, and Part 4- How Can I Continue My Professional Growth in Science Education?
