Inquiry-based teaching is central to the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy, and research has proven that an inquiry approach to science teaching motivates and engages every type of student. Activities for Teaching Science as Inquiry follows a clear, easy-to-follow approach to inquiry, using the 5-E Learning Cycle model of instruction (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate). Derived from the leading book on the market, Teaching Science as Inquiry, it offers an abundance of practical ways to take inquiry science into your classroom! A few of the highlights of this new seventh edition are: Each activity is keyed to the NSES Standards, further developing new and experienced teachers' fluency with a standards-based science classroom. Activities adhere even more closely to the 5-E instructional model. The framework provides a clear, manageable way to engage students in inquiry activities. Clear activity outlines, including needed safety precautions, meaningfully prepare new and experienced teachers for integrating inquiry activities into their science classroom.Contant, Terry L. is the author of 'Activities for Teaching Science as Inquiry', published 2008 under ISBN 9780136156802 and ISBN 0136156800.
