Overview

Inquiry-based teaching is central to the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy, and research has proven that an inquiry approach to science teaching motivates and engages every type of student. Methods for Teaching Science as Inquiry provides a clear, easy-to-follow approach to inquiry, using the 5-E Learning Cycle model of instruction (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate). This book is derived from Teaching Science as Inquiry, which has become the leading book on the market!

New to this edition: Chapter 6, Assessing Science Learning, includes a new section on Science Standards and Statewide Tests which helps teachers understand the relationship between standardized test items and the conceptual knowledge and inquiry skills students need to learn. (See pages 176-181), Updated, research-based coverage on meeting the needs of English Language Learners and strategies for reaching diverse learners helps prepare teachers for the realities of today's classrooms. (See pages 267-271), Margin notes link readers to activities that model standards-based inquiry and developmentally appropriate science content (See pages 5 and 15), Integration with MyEducationLab gives readers access to video clips, journal articles, examples of student work, and assessments to gauge understanding of chapter content.
