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.
