From the reviews: "The present book is a collection of chapters, written by different authors, coordinated by T.D. Sadler. ... This book is a must for researchers in education who are interested in teaching SSIs, but it should also be read by those studying the teaching of stabilized knowledge in science. The issues raised are significantly rich. The form chosen is original and stimulating. I strongly recommend it." (Laurence Simonneaux, Science & Education, May, 2012)
