These strategies allow secondary science teachers to differentiate instruction within an inquiry approach. Readers will learn how to: - Engage students in inquiry-based science - Promote collaborative learning - Incorporate technology into activities and assignments - Use formative assessment to engage students in content and instruction - Develop culturally responsive practices that invite contributions from diverse students - Build students' scientific literacy and reasoning skills - Involve parents in their children's science learning.

What Successful Science Teachers Do 75 Research-Based Strategies Press Reviews

Concise and well-defined strategies can be readily adapted to various learning styles and are designed to enhance critical and higher level thinking skills and help facilitators move from traditional to inquiry-based teaching methods. This is a valuable resource for in-service training on all levels. -- Jean Worsley, Retired Teacher As the author of Corwin's bestselling book, Science Formative Assessment?75 Practical Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning (P. Keeley, 2005), I am often asked to write a similar book that focuses on instructional strategies. The simple answer is there is no need for me to do so. This book serves that very purpose and is a wonderful companion to Science Formative Assessment. After all, instruction and assessment are two sides of the same coin?you can't have one without the other?they are inextricably linked and complement each other. -- Page Keeley, Author I found several strategies mentioned to be helpful to my own practice and tried them right away with immediate success. For example, in addition to including the unit objectives in an email to parents concerning an upcoming test, I will include suggestions on ways parents can help their children prepare. -- Deanna Brunlinger, National Board Certified Science Teacher Bridging the gap in science education between research and practice just got easier, due to this organized guide to research-based science teaching strategies. -- CHOICE, May 2011 The research is strong and well presented. The book addresses all aspects of science education and focuses on developing scientific thinkers. -- Loukea Kovanis-Wilson, Chemistry Instructor This book encompasses an extensive collection of strategies supported by research and enhanced with practical classroom applications. I recommend it a must-have for novice teachers, mentoring struggling teachers, and refreshing, enhancing experienced teachers in their practice of the art and craft of teaching today's and tomorrow's learners. -- J-Petrina Puhl, Secondary Science Teacher
