Douglas Llewellyn focuses on teaching science through an inquiry-based process, showing teachers how to implement inquiry using the three "Rs" of inquiry--restructuring, retooling, and reculturing. Inquire Within helps teachers design inquiries for their students and also provides ready-to-use inquiry lessons. Updates to the Third Edition include: Alignment with the new Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards A central focus on making and defending scientific arguments (i.e. argumentation) Guidance on developing the prerequisite attitude and mindset for becoming an inquiry- and argument-based teacher How to balance the meaning (the disposition) as well as the mechanics (the how-to) of inquiry and argumentation Background on self-directed learning Practice in climbing the ladder of professional improvement Many new vignettes of inquiry and argument-based activities that integrate language arts with science. New sections tie inquiry-based instruction to classroom management, language literacy, the nature of science, multiple intelligence, communication skills, and scientific argumentation. The Third Edition is now closely aligned with Teaching High School Science Through Inquiry and Argumentation

The need for a scientifically literate citizenry, one that is able to think critically and engage productively in the engineering design process, has never been greater. By raising engineering design to the same level as scientific inquiry the Next Generation Science Standards’ (NGSS) have signaled their commitment to the integration of engineering design into the fabric of science education. This call has raised many critical questions...How well do these new standards represent what actually engineers do? Where do the deep connections among science and engineering practices lie? To what extent can (or even should) science and engineering practices co-exist in formal and informal educational spaces? Which of the core science concepts are best to leverage in the pursuit of coherent and compelling integration of engineering practices? What science important content may be pushed aside? This book, tackles many of these tough questions head on. All of the contributing authors consider the same core question: Given the rapidly changing landscape of science education, including the elevated status of engineering design, what are the best approaches to the effective integration of the science and engineering practices? They answered with rich descriptions of pioneering approaches, critical insights, and useful practical examples of how embodying a culture of interdisciplinarity and innovation can fuel the development of a scientifically literate citizenry . This collection of work builds traversable bridges across diverse research communities and begins to break down long standing disciplinary silos that have historically often hamstrung well-meaning efforts to bring research and practice from science and engineering together in meaningful and lasting ways.

An accessible and authoritative approach to effective science teaching, this text is the work of 16 contributors who each employ a single metaphor that will resonate with readers --that science education can and should be considered an exciting game. With "Windows Into the Classroom" personal accounts and "The Game in Action" vignettes students are provided with practical applications throughout the book. Many contributors to this book were involved in the development and draft review of the National Science Education Standards, and therefore fully appreciate the importance of overtly linking research-based commentary and recommendations to the Standards. As a result, the entire work is steeped in a current research foundation tied closely to the National Science Education Standards. Features of this new text: "Windows into the classroom" personal accounts and "The Game in Action" vignettes provide practical applications throughout the book. Written in accessible first person accounts, each contributor takes a conversational approach that will appeal to a broad audience of readers. Introductions establishes the game metaphor that sustains the chapter and weaves throughout the book. Conclusions leaves the reader with upbeat and practical suggestions for effective science teaching. Author Biographies highligh the distinguished record of achievement of each contributor. Additional Resources at the end of each chapter provide suggestions of useful readings, websites, and other instructional instruments. Reflection questions intended to provoke the reader to apply the ideas and concepts unearthed in the chapter to his or her own unique vantage or condition as an educator. "The research base of this proposal is a 10 on a scale of 1-10 ...I'm impressed with the style and theme of the essays students would learn a great deal regarding the practical application of science education." Professor David R. Wetzel, "Bloomsburg University" "I very much like the use of the analogy of a "Game" used by the authors. 'The text is VERY readable." Professor Molly Weinburgh "Georgia State University" "The writing style and use of the game metaphor will undoubtedly grab undergraduate, alternate entry, and graduate student interest." Professor Warren J. DiBiase, EdD "University of North Carolina, Charlotte" Author Bio A decorated veteran of high school science teaching, Jeff now researches effective science teaching and learning, testing innovations on his students at Northern Iowa. He also develops curriculum, consults at local and national levels, and serves science education organizations. He has published research and philosophy in Educational Leadership, Phi Delta Kappa, The Science Teacher, The American Biology Teacher, Education Week, the Journal of College Science Teaching, the Journal of Science Teacher Education, the International Journal of Science Education, and Teacher magazine.

What is science for a child? How do children learn about science and how to do science? Drawing on a vast array of work from neuroscience to classroom observation, Taking Science to School provides a comprehensive picture of what we know about teaching and learning science from kindergarten through eighth grade. By looking at a broad range of questions, this book provides a basic foundation for guiding science teaching and supporting students in their learning. Taking Science to School answers such questions as: When do children begin to learn about science? Are there critical stages in a child's development of such scientific concepts as mass or animate objects? What role does nonschool learning play in children's knowledge of science? How can science education capitalize on children's natural curiosity? What are the best tasks for books, lectures, and hands-on learning? How can teachers be taught to teach science? The book also provides a detailed examination of how we know what we know about children's learning of science--about the role of research and evidence. This book will be an essential resource for everyone involved in K-8 science education--teachers, principals, boards of education, teacher education providers and accreditors, education researchers, federal education agencies, and state and federal policy makers. It will also be a useful guide for parents and others interested in how children learn.
