dc.description.abstractThe idea that scientific theories and conclusions are provisionally true is essential for students to understand. There are limitations as to what passes for science and epistemological limitations to scientific knowledge. These limitations of science cannot be taught in one lesson but must be infused within science teaching practice. This portfolio is a coaching document. It highlights areas where this important aspect of the nature of science (NOS) can be included within regular teaching activities. The participating demonstrations (PD) are guides to help teachers develop their class materials. The idea of the exemplar or teacher prompt is a second opportunity for teachers, both new and seasoned, to develop their understanding of NOS. After which, it is easier to impart that understanding to students in their classroom.en_US
