Overview

Teaching Children Science: Discovery Methods for the Elementary and Middle Grades, Third Edition

Joseph Abruscato, Retired from University of Vermont

Donald DeRosa, Boston University

Using the discovery approach made popular through Abruscato’s comprehensive text Teaching Children Science: A Discovery Approach, Seventh Edition , this truncated version excludes the content and activities covered in Parts II-IV of the larger text. Written in an engaging style to attract readers’ interest, this text offers the first nine “methods” chapters of the comprehensive text that cover cooperative learning, questioning and active listening in their classrooms, planning and managing discovery-based units, assessing students’ learning and understanding, and integrating science across the curriculum.
