Description

Teaching High School Science Through Inquiry offers a complete plan for nurturing a culture of inquiry in classrooms and schools. Drawing from current research, case studies, and personal anecdotes, Llewellyn leads teachers on a personal and professional journey to understanding inquiry-based instruction. Paying close attention to national standards, he shows teachers how to help students:

  • Develop an understanding of scientific concepts and the nature of science
  • Learn the skills and attitudes necessary to become independent thinkers and inquirers about the natural world
  • Identify questions and concepts that guide scientific investigations
  • Use logic and evidence to formulate and revise scientific explanations

The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the National Research Council, and the National Science Teachers Association all assert the importance of promoting scientific literacy through the perspectives and methods of inquiry. Teaching High School Science Through Inquiry makes it doable. --Amazon Description
