Overview

Merrill Education invites you to rediscover Teaching Secondary School Science: Strategies for Developing Scientific Literacy, Eighth Edition. Still reflecting the latest in learning theory, inquiry, and professional development, this text has new pedagogy that makes it even easier for students to incorporate the hands-on, practical activities and exercises in their own classrooms. Unique Features:

  • Engage your students with Teaching Science Activity features, Investigating Science Teaching, Engaging in Action Research, and Experiencing Ethical Analysis. Located at the ends of the chapters, they provide an opportunity for students to experience science for themselves.
  • Icons highlight new integrated technology resources. Discussions of technology have been updated and woven throughout the text, including Technology margin notes that encourage students to visit the text's website at www.prenhall.com/trowbridge for further research and supplemental science activities.
  • Guest Editorials showcase real preservice and inservice science teachers. These editorials appear throughout the text to help illustrate concepts and provide real-world context for students.
