Bringing First-Rate Science to the Elementary Classroom
Preservice and novice teachers feeling jittery will find this book full of workable strategies for helping students experience the wonders of science. Classroom veterans will discover new ideas, and science educators will learn how colleagues pass on the art of good teaching.
Teaching Teachers' thirteen articles - culled from the "Teaching Teachers" section of the NSTA's award-winning journal, Science and Children - were written within the spirit of the National Science Education Standards by leading college educators. In practical, concrete ways, they show how to
- Identify and correct students' misconceptions about science
- Introduce the nature of science and develop experimental knowledge
- Teach science with a special focus on language arts
- Turn textbook exercises into active investigations
From teachers as learners to assessment, from integrating the curriculum to the specifics of activity stations, demonstrations, and hands-on inquiry - this book gathers it all in one easy-to-reference volume.
