Teaching Science to Every Child: Using Culture as a Starting Point

Teaching Science to Every Child: Using Culture as a Starting Point Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teaching Science to Every Child proposes a fresh perspective for teaching school science and draws upon an extensive body of classroom research to meaningfully address the achievement gap in science education. Settlage and Southerland begin from the point of view that science can be thought of as a culture, rather than as a fixed body of knowledge. Throughout this book, the idea of culture is used to illustrate how teachers can guide all students to be successful in science while still being respectful of students??? ethnic heritages and cultural traditions. By combining a cultural view of science with instructional approaches shown to be effective in a variety of settings, the authors provide elementary and middle school teachers with a conceptual framework as well as pedagogical approaches which support the science learning of a diverse array of students.

Book News Annotation:

Focusing on educating students in grades K-8, Settlage (education, U. of Connecticut) and Southerland (education, Florida State U.) show teachers how to use particular forms of communication, unique ways of thinking and special types of tools to create a culture of science that relates directly to the lives and needs of diverse students while respecting their cultural traditions and accommodating their varied abilities. With narratives, suggested readings, examples and sample lessons, they describe forming commitments to science teaching; using basic science skills such as observing, inferring, classifying, measuring, predicting and communicating; taking new approaches to science education; using the learning cycle as a model for science teaching; employing questioning strategies and leading discussions; moving from activity to inquiry; unpacking the nature of science; developing science curriculum; integrating science with other subjects, assessing students' science learning; managing a classroom and technology; and negotiating with different communities.
