Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Complete your review of where science education in the U.S. is heading with this wide-ranging look at secondary-level science curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Through lively examples of classroom practice, interviews with award-winning science teachers and science education experts, and a thorough review of the research, discover how science classes are going beyond lectures, textbooks, rote memorization, and lab demonstrations to focus on: (1) Educating students for a deeper conceptual understanding of science; (2) Engaging students in scientific inquiry in the classroom; (3) Addressing problems with achievement, equity, and resources in science; (4) Using backward design to bring greater coherence to science curriculum; and (5) Helping teachers reexamine and improve their practice.
