Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This core textbook for courses in middle and high school science teaching methods practices what it preaches--it uses the inquiry approach to teach the inquiry approach. Each chapter begins with activities that allow readers to explore key issues and questions, and ends with chapter review summaries and application questions. Technical terms have been kept to a minimum, and ideas and examples are always introduced before terms. The text explains the nature of the scientific inquiry process, presents methods for teaching scientific reasoning patterns in the context of inquiry instruction in a standards-based environment, and presents a research-tested theory of instruction, resting on recent work in the field of cognitive psychology. Examples of inquiry lessons are provided, along with examples of classroom management techniques, lesson planning, and evaluation. B&w classroom photos and sample assignments are included. An instructor resources site provides PowerPoint slides for each chapter, a test bank, chapter outlines with notes, Internet resources, and sample assignments. Lawson teaches courses in biology, teaching methods, and research methods at Arizona State University. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Teaching Inquiry Science in Secondary Schools is a mainstream text for secondary science teaching methods courses that is structured around the following key questions:

1. What is science?

2. Why teach science?

3. What is the nature of scientific knowledge?

4. How do scientists construct knowledge?

5. How do people develop effective reasoning patterns?

6. What teaching methods best facilitate scientific knowledge acquisition (both conceptual knowledge construction and reasoning pattern development)?

The text does an excellent job of providing both theoretically sound and empirically based answers to these questions. The book provides an excellent introduction to inquiry-oriented (i.e., learning cycle) teaching methods. Several examples of good inquiry lessons are also provided, as are several examples of classroom management techniques, lesson planning procedures, and effective evaluation procedures.
