Pathways to scientific teaching
Ebert-May (Michigan State U.) and Janet Hodder (U. of Oregon) present several models for evidence-based science instruction at the advanced high school and undergraduate levels. A teaching concept is introduced in each section and combined with a scholarly article on a science issue toward which the practices discussed can be applied. The contributors center lessons around topics that include climate change and confronting student ideas; revealing the ocean's etiology to earthbound students; ecological controversy; reading science and collaborative inquiry; novel assessments of student learning; homework preparation for students, and bridging the path from instruction to research.
