  1. Argument-Driven Inquiry in Physics, Volume 1: Mechanics Lab Investigations for Grades 9-12

    Are you interested in using argument-driven inquiry for high school lab instruction but just aren't sure how to do it? Argument-Driven Inquiry in Physics, Volume 1 focuses on mechanics and will provide you with the information and instructional materials you need to start using this method right away. The book is divided into two basic parts: an introduction to the stages of argument-driven inquiry, and a well-organised series of 23 field-tested labs designed to be much more authentic for instruction than traditional laboratory activities. The book features easy-to-use, reproducible student pages, teacher notes and checkout questions. The labs also support today’s standards and will help your students learn science practices, crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas.

  3. 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.

  4. Beyond the Egg Drop: Infusing Engineering Into High School Physics
    Problem: You’re eager to expand your physics curriculum and engage your students with engineering content but you don’t know how. Solution: Use the approach and lessons in Beyond the Egg Drop to infuse engineering into what you’re already teaching, without sacrificing time for teaching physics concepts. In addition to a thorough discussion on the rationale, justification, meaning, and implementation of integrating engineering into your science curriculum, this book provides 24 flexible, engineering-infused physics lessons that cover mechanics, optics, electricity, and thermodynamics. Lessons also include examples of student work; incorporate strategies for assessment, teaching, and student learning; and connect to A Framework for K–12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards.   
    And like the venerable egg-drop experiment, these are classroom-tested lessons that are designed to truly engage your students. You can tell your students will tune in from the lesson titles—from “Bumper Cars” to “Zombie Apocalypse Flashlight.” Developed as part of Project Infuse, a National Science Foundation study, the lessons in Beyond the Egg Drop will make it easier to include engineering concepts and skills without having to restructure your existing physics curriculum.
