Overview

This dynamic 'minds-on/hands-on' science book shows teachers how a guided discovery approach to teaching science can ignite children's interest and help them develop a real appreciation for the subject while learning its concepts. Reflecting the sweeping reforms taking place in science teaching, and ranked No.1 in a survey of books by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, it offers activities to stimulate a child's natural curiosity and guided questioning techniques to illicit insights and personal discovery. Provides complete resource information on planning, organizing, and running a guided discovery science program in preschool, elementary, middle, and junior-high settings. Uses a constructivist teaching/learning approach throughout, and explores cross-subject teaching in-depth, offering a wealth of ideas for integrating science teaching with oral and written language, social studies, art, mathematics, music, and physical education. Eighth Edition features include: 'Charting a New Course'- a chapter-opening section which discusses concerns the National Science Foundation recognize as areas in science curriculum where teachers can make a difference, and; an integration of science activities within chapters to show how each scientific concept can be concretely developed. For teachers of science education.
