From the Publisher:

The updated edition of this popular, comprehensive methods text continues its tradition of offering prospective science teachers essential theoretical background along with numerous practical ideas for teaching science and promoting science literacy in middle and secondary schools. This text explores the history of science education in the United States, including the influence of such major learning psychologists as Gagne, Bruner, Piaget, and Ausubel. Individual chapters offer a wealth of instructional strategies for teaching science, as well as rationale and techniques for instructional planning at the lesson, unit, and course level.

From the Back Cover:

This science methods textbook is designed to prepare middle and high school science teachers to help students become scientifically and technologically literate by first helping them understand the elements of science reform and then supporting their efforts.

Features new to the fifth edition include:

  • Open cases and vignettes that illustrate how science teachers help students construct their own understanding
  • "Stop and Reflect" exercises throughout each chapter to help readers contextualize and reflect upon what was read
  • Expanded coverage of teaching students with special needs and equity in science teaching and learning
  • Discussion of a variety of alternative and authentic assessment methods
