Description: This core text for the K–8 methods course in science is a practical guide to teaching science in inquiry-centered and standards-based classrooms. Its inclusive coverage of the major domains of science includes examples from the studies of life, physics, earth, space, and environment. This edition integrates technology thoroughly with science content, instructional methods, and cues to monitoring student development. Marginal icons focus on implementing standards in lessons, highlighting the National Science Education Standards, the Benchmarks for Science Literacy, the National Educational Technology Standards, and the Standards for Technological Literacy. Practical classroom-tested suggestions are provided to help teach students with special needs, differing abilities, and diverging learning styles.
