I have used Science Backpacks and found them a wonderful way to extend the school day and involve families in their child’s learning.
Many ideas were new to me and I enjoyed the fact that they were very simple to implement, yet would be a valuable use of my time.

This book does a great job of giving research and theory while outlining practical ways of bridging the gap between information and how this process might look in a classroom.
This book combines all the elements of what is needed to successful teach in a culturally relevant way a subject that many minorities feel offer no connection to their present day lives or future goal attainment. Additionally, it can serve as a springboard for discussions on how teachers can improve the job that they are doing at better teaching and reaching all students.
