Improve your lessons and labs using scientific inquiry and argumentation!Scientific literacy for all students is the primary goal of science educators across the United States. While the media continues to question the effectiveness of science instruction, educators and officials are developing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to improve students' scientific literacy, college readiness, and global competitiveness. Teaching High School Science Through Inquiry and Argumentation is a groundbreaking book that addresses the new direction of the standards, by emphasizing both inquiry-based and argument-based science instruction. Devoted to grades 9-12, this new edition focuses on four key elements of science education: scientific literacy, inquiry, argumentation, and the nature of science. Fully revised, this edition features Content that addresses the Next Generation Science StandardsExceptional coverage of scientific argumentationEnhanced chapters on assessment and classroom managementMore on the questioning techniques that promote the most learningActivities that emphasize making claims and citing evidenceNew examples of inquiry investigationsNew approaches to traditional labsUsing case studies and vignettes, this resource models exemplary science instruction. Its standards-based content shows high school teachers how to elevate their teaching to meet the call for instructional reform.

Douglas Llewellyn is director of science at the Rochester City School District, a professor of undergraduate- and graduate-level science education at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, a former middle school science teacher, and a former junior high school principal. He is a frequent guest speaker at local and national science conferences and has been involved with numerous National Science Foundation grants on systemic reform.
