Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Company College Division
Using narratives about science in the classroom as a tool for teaching and learning, this text helps prepare teachers to build their own science knowledge and learn from students' experiences. Each science story illustrates key concepts by showing children and teachers doing science together, thus demonstrating content, learning, and strategies in action.
The Expanding Meanings sections which follow each story provide key pedagogy by offering the Teaching Ideas Behind the Story, the Science Ideas Behind the Story, and the Science Standards Behind the Story. In addition, Questions and Resources for Further Exploration challenge readers to explore on their own.
- Useful Internet resources and an overall emphasis on technology as a connection to science learning are included throughout the text, and in Chapter 13 in particular.
- Updated terminology and topics reflect current policy shifts and changes in the field.
