If you're a practicing teacher, this book will refresh what you already know, and could lead you into new and fruitful approaches. and if you're an administrator, this is the perfect professional development tool as a reference for your staff. The book is a generously sized compendium of articles drawn from NSTA's middle and elementary level journals Science Scope and Science and Children. Editor Eric Brunsell teaches his methods courses using only the articles, the "voice of the classroom teacher," he says. Brunsell has chosen the best journal articles, tested each in the classroom, and organized them into seven sections, each supplemented with its own insightful introduction and "action steps:" The Nature of Science and Science Inquiry: Teaching Science; Science for All; Science-Teaching Toolbox; Teaching Life and Environmental Science; Teaching Physical Science; and Teaching Earth and Space Science.
