Lucid Perspectives on the Art of Physical Science Teaching from the South African Context

Awelani V. Mudau


This paper presents the literature reviewed to articulate lucidly the nature of science, the purpose of teaching science, general teaching challenges in physical science as well as teaching as an art in the context of teaching in the high school. The teaching of science involves many facets such as the nature of science and the nature of teaching challenges in physics. The purpose of this presentation is to add into the resources for in-service training. The paper should induce discussions within the community of practice in the physical science as to how facets involved in the crafting of the art of teaching physical science shape it. It is also envisaged that the presentation should form some basis for further studies that focus on the indicated facets on how they shape the teachers art in practice which should in turn influence further research on the kind of appropriate in-service training to hone the teacher’s art.
