Using the very successful format of the What Successful Teachers Do series, Neal Glasgow, Michele Cheyne, and Randy Yerrick present 75 research-based strategies for effective science instruction. Each strategy includes a brief description of the research, the classroom applications, possible pitfalls during implementation, and the source citations for those who want to learn more. 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.
