Proven ways to teach next generation science!

The numbers are in and the pressure is on. The U.S′s lead in science is very much at risk. If we′re to help ensure our students achieve scientific literacy, we need to take a critical look at what′s working and what isn′t. One thing we know for certain: inquiry and argumentation are key, and the single-best resource on the subject is Teaching High School Science Through Inquiry and Argumentation.

Devoted to Grades 9–12, this new edition of Douglas Llewellyn′s ground-breaking text aligns the four key elements of effective science education: scientific literacy, inquiry, argumentation, and the nature of science. Fully revised, the second edition features 

Content that addresses the new direction of science standards Exceptional coverage of scientific argumentationEnhanced chapters on assessment and classroom managementQuestioning techniques that promote the most learningActivities that emphasize making claims and citing evidenceNew examples of inquiry investigationsNew approaches to traditional labsCase studies and vignettes that model exemplary science instruction

With its standards-based content, there′s no better resource to help you elevate your teaching to meet the call for instructional reform.

Douglas Llewellyn teaches science education courses at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York. Previously, he was the K–12 Director of Science at the Rochester City School District, a junior high school principal, and a middle school science teacher. His books include Inquire Within: Implementing Inquiry-Based Science Standards in Grades 3–8 and Differentiated Science Inquiry, both published by Corwin.

"Llewellyn′s approach supports educators in realizing the central role argumentation plays in helping students make defensible connection between claims, data, evidence, and explanations. Not only is this a timely publication, but one that is sure to be well-used."
