Book Description

January 2, 2005 020546453X 978-0205464531 Pck

This book is a short primer in each of the major science content areas that preservice and inservice elementary and middle school teachers are expected to know.

As a quick reference to science concepts, events, influence, and chronology, this book is an invaluable resource for the classroom teacher who needs an overview for planning, as well as help in answering student questions. Based broadly on the national standards, it gives the teacher general scientific information to cover most state's standards. It also provides a strong overview of science and technology related to the social context that allows the teacher to better understand the science contribution to important events and inventions, identify significant trends in human history, and help in the teacher's understanding of science concepts and events. Moreover, it saves professors of methods courses from having to re-teach science concepts content so they can remain focused on the methods.

3.0 out of 5 stars Depends on How You Want To Use it July 28, 2008
This product receives a mixed review from me. If you already know science and want an overview of age appropriate science content for elementary and middle schoolers, this is an excellent guide. If you don't know science and want to learn it, this can only help you by helping you identify what you will need to know in greater depth. So in short, this is the best or the worst product, depending on how you want to use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book February 17, 2007
The book arrived in perfect condition wrapped in plastic. I bought it for a graduate level early education course. It is easy to read and I think it will be invaluable when I study for my Praxis.
