In this article, multiple facets of science education will be addressed. For several decades, especially since the launch of Sputnik, science education has been much discussed as an engine of innovation and a primary driver of economic success and national security. This attention has driven the discussion of science education and created urgency with regard to scientific literacy, or the habits of mind and processes germane to science and inquiry. Much has been written about the scientific literacy and inquiry that has driven instruction in K–12 schools, as well as the preparation of science educators and the development of their pedagogical content knowledge. This article includes books, articles, journals, and organizations that have influenced, and continue to influence, science instruction, learning, and assessment.
