  3. Argument-Driven Inquiry in Earth and Space Science: Lab Investigations for Grade 6-10

    Are you interested in using Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) for middle years and high school lab instruction, but just aren’t sure how to do it? You aren't alone. This book will provide you with the information materials you need to start using this method right away. The book is a one-stop source of expertise, advice and investigations to help Earth and space sciences students work the way scientists do. The book is divided into two basic parts: an introduction to the stages of ADI, and a well-organised series of 23 field-tested labs designed to be much more authentic for instruction than traditional laboratory activities. Argument-Driven Inquiry in Earth and Space Science gives students the chance to practise reading, writing, speaking and using maths in the context of science.

  4. Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1, Second Edition: 25 Formative Assessment Probes

    This second edition of Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1, is loaded with classroom-friendly features to pinpoint what your students know (or think they know) so you can adjust your teaching accordingly. At the book's heart are 25 'probes' - easily administered formative assessments will determine your students' thinking on 60 core science concepts in a variety of areas, including light, sound, matter, gravity, heat, temperature, life science, and Earth and space science. The probes are invaluable formative assessment tools to use before you start a topic or unit. Each probe has been field-tested across multiple year levels and can be used at any point in an instructional cycle, and will help you understand what your students are thinking and adjust your instruction accordingly.
