Using narratives about science in the classroom as a tool for teaching and learning, this text helps prepare teachers to build their own knowledge through a constructivist approach and learn from students' experiences. Each science story presents actual classroom scenarios that demonstrate content, learning, and strategies in action. Stories are followed by Expanding Meanings sections, as well as coverage of the Teaching Ideas, Science Ideas, and Science Standards applicable to each one.

Janice Koch is Professor Emerita of Education in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Hofstra University, Long Island, New York. She taught general introduction to education courses and elementary, middle, and secondary science methods courses as well as courses for teachers in action research, qualitative research, and gender issues in the classroom. Dr. Koch shares her passion for teaching and learning through presentations as well as through her introduction to education text, TEACH, 2nd Edition (2014, Cengage). Her acclaimed textbook, SCIENCE STORIES, has been used by thousands of pre-service and in-service educators interested in creating meaningful science experiences for their students. She and her husband currently reside in Central Maryland, where she consults on education projects across the country and internationally.Review:
"I have never used the Koch text but will use it next fall for my two sections of science methods with undergraduates. As I read the chapters I realized that it may be just what I have been looking for. I need something that the students can relate to, not too difficult that it goes over their heads and not too dry. Its strengths are: Readability, science stories making science concepts and teaching ideas accessible to students. Personal reflections of the author woven throughout. Text feels like it was written by someone who has taught science in the classroom. Instructor support much more than most texts give."
