Inquire Within: Implementing Inquiry-Based Science Standards in Grades 3-8
In this revised edition, Douglas Llewellyn focuses on teaching science through an inquiry-based process, showing teachers how to implement inquiry using the three "Rs" of inquiry--restructuring, retooling, and reculturing. Inquire Within helps readers design inquiries for their students and also provides ready-to-use inquiry lessons that can be used immediately.
New features of the second edition include:
· Three aspects of inquiry--promoting content knowledge, science process skills, and positive attitudes or dispositions
· A new chapter of suggested investigations with teacher notes
· Strategies for using inquiry methods with ELLs and special education students
Technology incorporated into activities
Teachers will find Inquire Within an excellent professional development resource for advancing to exemplary or mastery level. Novice and pre-service teachers will find the book a useful handbook, and administrators can use the three "Rs" to enhance their schools′ science education program.
