  1. Whole-Class Inquiry: Creating Student-Centered Science Communities

    Dennis Smithenry and Joan Gallagher-Bolos want to help you transform your secondary school science classroom into a student-led scientific community in which your students take ownership of their projects and mimic real-world exploration. Whole-Class Inquiry provides firsthand descriptions of Joan's aims and observations - and her introspective analysis - while she skilfully moves her chemistry class toward the ultimate goal of whole-class inquiry. Dennis's commentary and research affirm the value of the process. On the two included DVDs you can see and hear the subtle details and methods involved in the transformation as the class completes three different projects onscreen.

  2. Pose, Wobble, Flow: A Culturally Proactive Approach to Literacy Instruction

    This book proposes a pedagogical model that encapsulates the challenge of teaching and the process of growing as an educator. The authors provide six different culturally proactive teaching stances or 'poses' that secondary English teachers can use to meet the needs of all students. They describe how teachers can expect to 'wobble' as they adapt instruction to their students' needs, while also incorporating new insights about their own preconceptions about teaching. Teachers are encouraged to recognise this flexibility as a positive process or 'flow' that can be used to address challenges and adopt ambitious teaching strategies.

  4. 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.
