Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Substantially rewritten to focus on inquiry teaching and learning as espoused in the National Science Education Standards, the new edition of Science in Elementary Education: Methods, Concepts, and Inquiries will prepare pre-service teachers to plan, facilitate, adapt, and assess inquiry experiences consistent with today’s science classroom.  It accomplishes this by implementing the 6E model of inquiry teaching, addressing the planning and needs of inquiry teaching classrooms, and describing the materials teachers need to get up and running.

 

This practical text includes over 350 Teaching Tips throughout and Twelve Inquiry Units that model constructivist applications, build conceptual knowledge, and provide a bank of classroom-tested lessons to use in science classrooms.

Finally, a textbook that has lesson plans! Actually, it's filled with them. Very well organized, easy to follow and teach from. Makes a great reference. I sell many of my textbooks after I finish a course, but I'm keeping this one.

My daughter needed this book for a college class she was taking. It served the purpose and was also sold at a better price than other places we had searched. It was in very good condition and arrived quickly, both of which were a bonus.

Didn't think the book was interesting. I actually didn't really even read much of it at all. Prof never referenced it much so I didn't bother. Didn't really have to purchase the book but would've spent twice as much buying it from my campus bookstore. It looked like new and I got it quickly. No problems with the seller-I just didn't like the book.

The book arrived within the designated time although it took a few days to ship. It was used and was written in but other than that it was fine.

The book was needed for a college class. It came as described and was used a good bit. No complaints about the book.
