Example text

Using annotated comments to link theory and practice In the text we link theory and practice with a series of crossreferenced, annotated comments. These take the form of summary statements located in the outside margin. Each account of teaching, as one might imagine, generates a multiplicity of comments that link with analyses. Each analysis chapter, in the same way, points to a succession of aspects of practice. A distinctive feature of our text is the use of these hypertextual statements giving the book a web-like character.

These authors both have a distinguished background in technology education and draw from this perspective to highlight instances of doing as opposed to abstract de-contextualized, disembodied knowing. There is much to learn from their conceptuallygrounded analysis. Discussions move in Analysis 6 to the teacher.

After some discussion, we agreed that he would try this with a Year 9 (14-year-olds) chemistry class who were being introduced to reactions between ions in solution.
