Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards: A Guide for Teaching and Learning

by

Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards: A Guide for Teaching and Learning Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Detailed examples help clarify when teachers should use the inquiry-based approach and how much structure, guidance, and coaching they should provide. The book dispels myths that may have discouraged educators from the inquiry-based approach and illuminates the subtle interplay between concepts, processes, and science as it is experienced in the classroom. Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards shows how to bring the standards to life, with features such as classroom vignettes exploring different kinds of inquiries for elementary, middle, and high school and Frequently Asked Questions for teachers, responding to common concerns such as obtaining teaching supplies. Turning to assessment, the committee discusses why assessment is important, looks at existing schemes and formats, and addresses how to involve students in assessing their own learning achievements. In addition, this book discusses administrative assistance, communication with parents, appropriate teacher evaluation, and other avenues to promoting and supporting this new teaching paradigm.

Book News Annotation:

Produced under the direction of a committee of the Center for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education, this guide for teachers attempts to provide an understanding of the concept of teaching "inquiry" and how to apply it to science teaching in kindergarten through 12th grade settings. Inquiry is seen as a twofold process that encompasses both the abilities students should develop in order to design and conduct scientific investigations as well as the teaching and learning strategies that enable scientific concepts to be mastered through investigations.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 153-158) and index.
