The Essentials of Science, Grades 7–12: Effective Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (Priorities in Practice series)
About This Book
Where is U.S. secondary-level science education heading today? That's the question that The Essentials of Science, Grades 7–12 sets out to answer. Over the last century, U.S. science classes have consistently relied on lectures, textbooks, rote memorization, and lab demonstrations. But with the onset of NCLB-mandated science testing and increased concern over the United States' diminishing global stature in science and technology, public pressure is mounting to educate students for a deeper conceptual understanding of science.
Through lively examples of classroom practice, interviews with award-winning science teachers and science education experts, and a wide-ranging look at research, readers will learn
Today's secondary science teachers are faced with an often-overwhelming array of challenges. The Essentials of Science, Grades 7–12 can help educators negotiate these challenges while making their careers more productive and rewarding.
