Teaching Science in Elementary and Middle School A Project-Based Approach by Joseph S. Krajcik, Charlene M. Czerniak

Teaching Science in Elementary and Middle School offers in-depth information about the fundamental features of project-based science and strategies for implementing the approach. In project-based science classrooms students investigate, use technology, develop artifacts, collaborate, and make products to show what they have learned. Paralleling what scientists do, project-based science represents the essence of inquiry and the nature of science. Because project-based science is a method aligned with what is known about how to help all children learn science, it not only helps students learn science more thoroughly and deeply, it also helps them experience the joy of doing science. Project-based science embodies the principles in A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards. Blending principles of learning and motivation with practical teaching ideas, this text shows how project-based learning is related to ideas in the Framework and provides concrete strategies for meeting its goals. Features include long-term, interdisciplinary, student-centered lessons; scenarios; learning activities, and Connecting to Framework for K-12 Science Education textboxes. More concise than previous editions, the Fourth Edition offers a wealth of supplementary material on a new Companion Website, including many videos showing a teacher and class in a project environment.


NSTA Recommends(R) National Science Teachers Association If teachers could find the time to read and reflect on this book, it could potentially transform their science classes. And for elementary teachers who teach most or all the academic subjects, many of this book's ideas would also be effective in those other subjects. - Richard Lord, High School Biology Teacher, NSTA
