“This concise and readable book details the Teaching for Transformative Experiences in Science (TTES) model, which aims to bring science education into the everyday world and enrich students’ experiences. Pugh (education psychology, Univ. of Northern Colorado) has been working on transformative education for 20 years and here details the theory of this practice, which has roots in John Dewey’s educational theories, while also covering stories, examples, strategies and exercises to try, and assessment tools. Throughout the text, Pugh also addresses different ways that educators can foster learning both in and out of the classroom. This volume will be suitable for current and preservice science teachers.”
