When I was an undergraduate taking my first philosophy of science course, I found Peter Kosso's Reading the Book of Nature helped me keep my head above water. It is a very introductory book, but for someone who had not thought about the sciences for a few years, it helped me put Hempel, van Fraassen, Kitcher and the other articles we were reading at the time into a more comprehensible context.

I also think Peter Godfrey-Smith's newish Theory and Reality looks like a good textbook, but (a) I have never taught from it, and (b) I have spent the last 7 years of my life thinking about philosophy of science, so I may not have the best perspective on what would be most understandable for a newcomer.
