  1. It's Debatable! Using Socioscientific Issues to Develop Scientific Literacy, K-12

    This book encourages scientific literacy by showing you how to teach the understanding and thinking skills your students need to explore real-world questions. Both practical and content-rich, It's Debatable! doesn't shy away from controversy. Instead, the authors encourage you and your students to confront just how messy the questions raised by science (and pseudoscience) can be. At the core of the exploration is the Socioscientific Issues Framework. The framework gives students practice in the research, analysis and argumentation necessary to grapple with difficult questions and build scientific literacy.
