Overview

Written by an experienced science teacher and science teacher educator, this brief volume helps bridge the gap between theory and practice. It offers readers a tool to understand not only what the National Science Education Standards (NSES) are, but also how they can enrich science teaching and learning to promote scientific literacy for all. In addition to offering clear descriptions of each of the six standards, Integrating the National Science Education Standards into Classroom Practice also:

Provides sample activities drawn from contemporary

classrooms, demonstrating the spirit of the NSES in

practice (see pages 14–15, 17–18, and 37–39).

Includes artifacts from K–12 classrooms drawn from the

author’s experience as a public school teacher to illustrate

teaching, program development, and curricular practices

consistent with the goals of the NSES (see pages 39–40,

44–46, and 50).

Presents examples of curriculum content and delivery,

performance-based assessment, and models for staff

development in line with the NSES (see pages 64, 93,

and 102).

Illustrates best practices through end-of-chapter

vignettes based on real-life teaching experiences to

emphasize the effectiveness of the NSES (see pages

52–53, 136–137, and 141–142).
