Summary

For courses in Science Methods in Elementary School. This is the quintessential science text designed to introduce future teachers to science instruction through inquiry. Infused with the philosophical intent of the National Science Education Standards, it includes the theory behind knowledge construction, the how-tos of knowledge acquisition, and questioning strategies that promote inquiry. It is overflowing with practical and meaningful activities, information, inquiries, strategies, and lessons. A major innovation of this edition is the majority of chapters that feature at least one activity based on a video that accompanies the text.
