Using the Book and the Stories

by: Richard Konicek-Moran

It is often difficult for overburdened teachers to develop lessons or activities that are compatible with the everyday life experiences of their students. A major premise of this book is that if students can see the real-life implications of science content, they will be motivated to carry out hands-on, minds-on science investigations and personally care about the results. This chapter describes how you can use this book and its captivating stories to do just that!
