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. Broadened coverage includes science stories from grades six through eight; the corresponding passages address concepts and issues relevant to middle school students. Coverage of standards includes National Science Education Standards and an emphasis on the National Education Technology Standards from ISTE. Marginal icons highlight these for easy reference. The chapter on assessment has been expanded to include information on technology-enhanced methods, using such tools as PowerPoint and concept maps.
