Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Art of Science Writing is a book for secondary school science and English teachers and anyone interested in learning to write about science. It is filled with practical advice about writing in many forms: essays, notes, personal memoirs, poetry, fiction, and others. The Art of Science Writing consists of five main sections: <BR>-- Essay Development Workshop: The essay from start to finish.<BR>-- 47 Writing Experiments.<BR>-- Questions & Answers: Over 30 questions teachers ask about science writing, and the answers.<BR>-- Samples: 43 inspiring examples of science writing by Darwin, Freud, Einstein, Jane Goodall, Rachel Carson, William Carlos Williams, Stephen Jay Gould, and others, including teachers and students.<BR>-- Annotated Bibliography: More than 150 books useful for science writing.

Synopsis:

HIGHLIGHTS: This collaboration of Worsely and Mayer provides numerous fun approaches to the writing process-from note-taking to journal entries to essay completion. Many of the exercises use concepts like logic, basic math, permutations, the Fibonacci scale, and Pascal's Triangle, as models on which to base poems, while other exercises emphasize writing about natural science, in an engaging way. Inspiring examples are provided, in the back of the book, from Jane Goodall, Carl Sagan, Margaret Mead, Bertrand Russell, Steven J. Gould, and Albert Einstein, among others. And an annotated bibliography, serves as a list of recommended reading for students and teachers alike.
