creating scientists cover

This book shows you how to create living, breathing scientists by shifting your teaching from a content focus to a hands-on, practice focus, where students discover science by doing science. As required by the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), this practical book provides a clear, research verified framework for building lessons that teach science practice abilities, such as gathering and making sense of data, constructing explanations, designing experiments, and communicating information. Creating Scientists features reproducible, immediately deployable tools and handouts that you can use in the classroom to assess your students’ learning within the domains for the NGSS or any standards framework that focuses on the integration of science practice with content. This book is an invaluable resource for educators seeking to build a “community of practice,” where students discover ideas through well-taught, hands-on, authentic science experiences that foster an innate love for learning how the world works.
