“I would encourage others to use it as a resource for a professional learning community or department discussion group and the like… absolutely I would recommend it – why? it is simply good for our students’ developing understanding of science…”
- Pamela M. Pelletier, Senior Program Director, Science K-12, Boston Public Schools, Boston, Massachusetts
" It can easily be used to guide middle school teams to collaboratively work together to ask higher order thinking questions in any core content area. This type of questioning leads to great classroom discourse, therefore engaging students in using claims, evidence, and reasoning."
"I see this book being used as a district professional development tool for teachers, especially since it focuses on creating more sophisticated uses of scientific explanations in the classroom as students learn more about the process."
- Kendra Walters Durham, Science Teacher, Wester Middle School, Frisco, Texas
"I think this is a great book and will be a very useful guide for middle level teachers. I am definitely purchasing this book and I will encourage my colleagues, both in science and other content areas to also make the purchase. The explanation framework provides a powerful tool, in my opinion, for middle school teachers to inter-disciplinary work towards building 21st century competencies.
I this is book would be extremely for in-service and pre-service teachers. I could certainly be very effectively used for professional development or book study opportunities."
- Ann M. Novak, 7th/8th Grade Science Teacher, Greenhills School, Ann Arbor, Michigan
