  7. Dive In! Immersion in Science Practices for High School Students

    A few years ago, veteran high school teachers and graduate-level scientists from the University of New Hampshire engaged in a collaborative study. One of their goals was to explain in detail how teachers and students can make the leap to implementing the recommendations of curriculum standards. Dive In! is the firsthand account of the study's illuminating results. By sharing personal examples, intriguing vignettes and field-tested lesson plans, the book aims to inspire you to immerse your students in active learning - or at least dip your toes into new ways of teaching. Written from an authentic teacher perspective, Dive In! presents a realistic picture of what it's like to integrate curriculum standards and practices into your science classroom.
