Learning Science and the Science of Learning: Science Educators' Essay Collection (e-book)

Sure, you teach science. But do your students really learn it? Students of all ages will absorb more if you adapt the way you teach to the way they learn. That's the message of this thoughtful collection of 12 essays by noted science teachers. Based on the latest research, this is definitely a scholarly book. But to bring theories to life, it includes realistic scenarios featuring classrooms where students are encouraged to "construct" their own science learning.

These scenarios will give you specific ideas on how to help your students become more reflective about their learning process, including what they know, what their stumbling blocks are, and how to overcome them. You'll also examine how to use formative assessment to gauge student learning during the course of a lesson, not just at the end.

Learning Science offers inspiration to all the weary teachers who've ever wondered, "Why don't these kids seem to get what I'm trying to say?"
