Reviewer Praise:

“The ‘What Research Says’ sections are an excellent feature…an enjoyable and practical way to become familiar with current research!” –Pamela Kramer, East Stroudsburg University

Comprehensive and engaging, the fifth edition of Teaching Science for All Children prepares elementary teachers to help students grasp the nature of science, construct understanding of and connections between science content area materials, apply scientific processes, and understand the interactions between science, technology, and society. The more than 60 featured lessons in the text employ the “Engage, Explore, Explain, Expand, Evaluate” Learning Cycle model and incorporate National Science Education Standards across all K-8 grade levels and science disciplines–earth, space, life, and physical. Authoritative coverage of science safety, new technology, national standards, and strategies for teaching diverse learners are the hallmarks of this well-respected text.

New to this edition:

  • NSES and NETS icons in the margin indicate standards-related content.
  • Revamped assessment chapter helps teachers see the connection between standardized tests, teacher assessment, and rubric development.
  • Increased discussion of diversity and individual differences throughout the book prepares teachers to work with students in today’s changing classroom.
  • Completely revamped technology chapter incorporates ISTE standards and guides teachers to select appropriate resources and media for their lessons.
  • Learning CycleFeature Lessons in the methods chapters now integrate photos and student work samples to enhance understanding and applications of the lesson.
  • New MyEducationLab feature box uses an Explore, Enrich and Expand framework for activities to engage readers with video and other media.

Also available in a compact version including only the methods chapters!
