The authors have successfully transformed typical high school science classrooms into student-led scientific communities in which learners take ownership of their projects and mimic real-world exploration. Now, in response to requests from science education professionals, they have created the perfect vehicle for implementing and assessing this concept of whole-class inquiry in your classroom. This volume provides first-hand descriptions of Joan Gallagher-Bolos’s aims, observations, and impressions, as well as introspective analysis, as she moves her chemistry class toward the ultimate goal of whole-class inquiry. In addition, two included DVDs enable you to watch the subtle details and methods involved in the transformation as the class completes three different projects onscreen. This is a must-have package for preservice and inservice middle and high school science teachers who are interested in exploring, learning to use, and vicariously experiencing this rewarding and proven approach.
