Investigating the Earth and Its Environment
Everett, Cheryl; Spear, Robyn
Science Teacher, v75 n1 p58-61 Jan 2008
Along with the need to make their curriculum more comprehensive and reflective of the national and state standards, one school district also searched for ways to make students more passionate about learning science. As a result, they developed a new integrated science course that is centered around the environmental and Earth sciences with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning, integrated science topics, the use of alternative assessment strategies, and the inclusion of technology. (Contains 4 figures and 7 online resources.)
