This talk will explore the idea of practices which are a major feature of the NRC Framework for Science Education published in 2011. It will explain why there has been a shift to the notion of practices from teaching science through inquiry, what it means for teaching science in the classroom and discuss what the change signifies. In particular, it will argue that this should not be seen as a revolution but rather an evolution and an improvement for the teaching of science.
