  3. Citizen Science: 15 Lessons That Bring Biology to Life, 6-12

    The editors of this book have a straightforward goal: to inspire you to engage your students through public collaboration in scientific research - also known as citizen science. The book is specifically designed to get you comfortable using citizen science to support independent inquiry through which your students can learn both content and process skills. You do not need an advanced degree in science to guide your students in productive participation in a variety of citizen science projects. As the editors note, "Such involvement can scaffold teachers' entry into facilitating student investigation while connecting students with relevant, meaningful, and real experiences with science."

  10. Teaching Energy Across the Sciences, K-12

    Students may have an idea of what energy means but still lack a full understanding of how it is a part of their everyday lives. By starting with an explanation of why energy is important and what students should know, then moving on to how energy should be taught in several disciplines, Teaching Energy Across the Sciences, K-12 can clarify how both your students and you regard instruction about energy. This valuable resource provides you with the strategies and tools you need to help students understand the crosscutting nature of the concept - an understanding that's crucial to developing a clear lens on how energy works in many contexts.
