About this title


Creating a Classroom Community of Young Scientists has won considerable praise for its groundbreaking inquiry-based and activity-oriented approach to science education. This approach, founded on the notion of democratic classroom communities, where students are responsible for_and in control of_their own and others' learning, continues to win over science educators and students alike.

Additionally, Creating a Classroom Community of Young Scientists includes in-depth treatment of the nature of science, and addresses children's learning and discourse, assessment, planning and implementing instruction, the nature of classroom communities, reflective practice and teacher research, and fostering the professional community of teachers.

This thoroughly revised and updated second edition provides both pre-service and in-service teachers with the insight and tools they need to develop exciting elementary and middle school science programs that will stimulate children's imaginations and create a strong foundation for their continued interest in science.

Features include:

  • Real-life examples, questions for reflection, and suggested classroom activities that make science education exciting for the teacher as well as the students.
  • Activities and teaching strategies that incorporate the latest information on science education standards in both the U.S. and Canada.
  • User-friendly and engaging new material on the benefits of an inquiry-based teaching method that offers teachers invaluable tools and techniques for the classroom.

Creating a Classroom Community of Young Scientists is the indispensable text for undergraduate and graduate methods courses in teaching elementary science and a rich source of classroom activities for practicing teachers.
