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 National Science Education Standards address not only what students should learn about science but also how their learning should be assessed. How do we know what they know? This accompanying volume to the Standards focuses on a key kind of assessment: the evaluation that occurs regularly in the classroom, by the teacher and his or her students as interacting participants. As students conduct experiments, for example, the teacher circulates around the room and asks individuals about their findings, using the feedback to adjust lessons plans and take other actions to boost learning. Focusing on the teacher as the primary player in assessment, the book offers assessment guidelines and explores how they can be adapted to the individual classroom. It features examples, definitions, illustrative vignettes, and practical suggestions to help teachers obtain the greatest benefit from this daily evaluation and tailoring process. The volume discusses how classroom assessment differs from conventional testing and grading-and how it fits into the larger, comprehensive assessment system.

If you want the latest research about assessment techniques that really work, you want Assessment in Science. This collection of informative, up-to-date reports is by authors who are practicing K - 12 classroom teachers and university-based educators and researchers. Working in teams, they tried out and evaluated different assessment approaches in actual classrooms. The research is sound, but that doesn't mean it's hard to grasp. The book stays true to its title by capturing practical lessons in accessible language. As the introduction notes, the reports feature "classroom testing stories, standards-based assessment techniques, teaching-testing dilemmas, portfolio struggles and triumphs, and knowledge of the research on assessment." The 18 chapters are structured for ease of comprehension, moving from a detailed description of how the research was carried out, to research finding, to concrete implications for the classroom. There is also a "Links to Standards" box and resources list in each chapter. Included throughout are 28 tables and 25 figures, some of which are classroom rubrics teachers can actually use. Though it's enlightening for classroom teachers at all levels, Assessment in Science is also ideal for curriculum supervisors and professors who teach science education, and anyone else who needs to know what's most current in proven assessment techniques.

Recent government publications like "Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy" and "Science for all Americans" have given teachers a mandate for improving science education in America. What we know about how learners construct meaning--particularly in the natural sciences--has undergone a virtual revolution in the past 25 years. Teachers, as well as researchers, are now grappling with how to better teach science, as well as how to assess whether students are learning. Assessing Science Understanding is a companion volume to Teaching Science for Understanding, and explores how to assess whether learning has taken place. The book discusses a range of promising new and practical tools for assessment including concept maps, vee diagrams, clinical interviews, problem sets, performance-based assessments, computer-based methods, visual and observational testing, portfolios, explanatory models, and national examinations.

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 ...my 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.
