a field guide to the science classroom with authentic examples presented in written and video form. It's a great way for staff developers to train teachers' eyes and ears to pick up the analysis and ideas of students as they occur in the wild of classroom conversations.
Advancing a new perspective, James Jadrich and Crystal Bruxvoort assert that scientific inquiry is best taught using models in science rather than focusing on scientists' activities. The authors place additional emphasis on sharing cognitive science research that provides valuable insight into how students learn and how instructions should teach.
Offering case studies, ready-to-use lessons, and teacher-friendly materials, this updated edition shows educators how to implement inquiry in the science classroom, incorporate technology, and work with ELLs and special education students.
