  1. STEM Student Research Handbook

    The STEM Student Research Handbook outlines the various stages of large-scale research projects, enabling teachers to coach their students through the research process. This volume provides enough detail to embolden all teachers to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics student-researchers through the experimental process. Early chapters help students conceive and implement their projects, while later chapters on descriptive and inferential statistics, as well as graphical representations, help them correctly interpret their data. Final chapters enable students to effectively communicate their results by writing and documenting a STEM research essay, as well as by preparing for oral and poster presentations.

  5. Media Literacy in the F-12, Updated and Expanded Second Edition

    Today's average youth spends over 10 hours a day consuming media. Aided by technology, young people can instantly share and engage with media messages to find answers, get directions, shop or connect with friends. But access alone doesn't lead to critical thinking. Media are texts, designed to be read, analysed, deconstructed and reconstructed. Understanding how to interpret advertising messages, check for bias or avoid stereotyping are among the skills students need to become knowledgeable consumers and producers of media. This book helps educators understand the importance of teaching media literacy and gives them the tools needed to bring this form of literacy into the classroom.
