Summary

0C-4, Peters, Joseph M., Gega, Peter C., Science in Elementary Education, 9/E/ This book presents a constructivist approach to the content and methodology needed to be an effective teacher of elementary science. Twelve inquiry units further explore the inquiry and concepts of specific science topics. These topics include: how science concepts and skills are effectively taught and learned, ways to successfully plan science instruction, resources needed to enhance the science program, assessment of student inquiry, and integration of instructional and design technology. The chapter on technology covers not only discussions on the applications of technology to advance science, but also the latest educational technology to promote learning in science classrooms. For science teachers at the elementary school level.
