"We need a book to help preservice and novice teachers use analogies and this resource allows teachers to bridge the gap that sometimes occurs when students are learning abstract concepts. The examples cover a wide variety of subjects and are written in a concise, easy-to-understand voice."
"This book will make a definite contribution to the teaching of science."
"Makes a distinct contribution to science instruction. Many teachers attempt to use analogies and metaphors to introduce abstract concepts; however, little is offered on how to do this with specific examples. The authors definitely address a need."
"The book has great potential for promoting thinking and understanding in science. It should be useful to teachers and students in strengthening conceptual and content background."
"The authors explain that scientists use analogies regularly in their research and writing. Analogies such as a supermarket for the biological classification system and a school dance for chemical equilibrium are discussed for their individual effectiveness in stimulating learning."
Very good book on analogies, but could not adopt as primary text. It is a reference text for two learning objectives in my class.
