Written with reform in mind, this book combines the teaching and learning of science by integrating pedagogy within science content investigations. The first chapter in each unit includes investigations appropriate for K-4 learners and the subsequent chapters present investigations for Grades 5-8. Each investigation has one student version that can be reproduced for classroom use and one teacher version that includes the expanded content needed to teach the investigation in a constructivist way. Aligned with the NSES science content standards, the investigations are sequenced to build conceptual development of science concepts and are supported by the 5E learning cycle lesson format. FEATURES: Foundational chapter presents research on how children learn - Chapter 1. Investigations supported by the 5E learning cycle lesson format help professors model for their students how to teach science as inquiry in the classroom. Physical, Life, and Earth/Space concepts each presented as a Unit, for a total of three. Four learning cycle lessons, or investigations introduce readers to developmentally appropriate inquiry learning. The first chapter in each unit includes investigations appropriate for K-4 learners and the subsequent 3 chapters present sequential, conceptual investigations for Grades 5-8. Teaching Tips accompany each investigation to provide practical teaching suggestions for new teachers as they implement lessons for the first time. Essential Teaching Strategies are presented during each investigation to support new teachers with instructional methodologies including the learning cycle, assessment, materials management, integrating math or reading, questioning strategies, and more. Lessons/investigations are aligned with the NSES science content standards and are sequencedto build conceptual development of science concepts. Immediate application to the classroom - Each investigation has one student version that can be reproduced for classroom use and one expanded teacher version that includes all the content and pedagogy needed to teach the investigation in a constructivist way. Learn to develop additional 5E lesson plans/investigations - through reader-friendly guidelines ensuring that any science activity readers find on the web or in a science book is set up as a valid scientific inquiry with an explorable question.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Humans, especially children, are naturally curious. Yet, people often balk at the thought of learning science--the "eyes glazed over" syndrome. Teachers may find teaching science a major challenge in an era when science ranges from the hardly imaginable quark to the distant, blazing quasar. Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards is the book that educators have been waiting for--a practical guide to teaching inquiry and teaching through inquiry, as recommended by the National Science Education Standards. This will be an important resource for educators who must help school boards, parents, and teachers understand "why we can't teach the way we used to." "Inquiry" refers to the diverse ways in which scientists study the natural world and in which students grasp science knowledge and the methods by which that knowledge is produced. This book explains and illustrates how inquiry helps students learn science content, master how to do science, and understand the nature of science. This book explores the dimensions of teaching and learning science as inquiry for K-12 students across a range of science topics. Detailed examples help clarify when teachers should use the inquiry-based approach and how much structure, guidance, and coaching they should provide. The book dispels myths that may have discouraged educators from the inquiry-based approach and illuminates the subtle interplay between concepts, processes, and science as it is experienced in the classroom. Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards shows how to bring the standards to life, with features such as classroom vignettes exploring different kinds of inquiries for elementary, middle, and high school and Frequently Asked Questions for teachers, responding to common concerns such as obtaining teaching supplies. Turning to assessment, the committee discusses why assessment is important, looks at existing schemes and formats, and addresses how to involve students in assessing their own learning achievements. In addition, this book discusses administrative assistance, communication with parents, appropriate teacher evaluation, and other avenues to promoting and supporting this new teaching paradigm.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Methods for Teaching Science as Inquiry introduces prospective and experienced teachers to the science content and teaching strategies necessary to teach science in contemporary ways. Traditional learning focuses on learning about things. The teacher dispenses the information and the student receives it. The inquiry approach emphasizes how we learn things rather than just what we know. Instead of just memorizing facts, students are actively involved in learning. Learning becomes fun when students are fascinated by something and it reflects their interests, goals, and experiences. The primary focus of this book is on the 5-E Model (Engaging, Exploring, Explaining, Elaborating, and Evaluating,) a Learning Cycle Model that reflects the NSES Science as Inquiry Standards. The inclusion of these standards will provide all readers a useful framework for making instructional decisions. Classroom scenarios throughout the book illustrate strategies of inquiry instruction and introduce readers to important science concepts. The scenarios also provide opportunities for readers to develop more science knowledge themselves. For the instructor whose sole focus is methods, the ten chapters of this core text scaffold concepts and illustrate instructional models to help readers understand the inquiry approach to teaching.
