“This is the book I have been waiting for! I can’t wait to use it in my work promoting cognitive apprenticeship in the context of collaborative inquiry between teachers and their students.
This book offers an exceptionally clear guide for navigating the complexity of teaching for deep understanding, transfer and use. It makes use of generative principles and threshold knowledge that are unconstrained and can be used at any grade level and in any scientific domain – in fact, I’d argue, in any and all disciplines.”
“I liked the approach that author Christopher Moore uses in the opening chapter of Creating Scientists. He introduces the idea that ‘creating scientists’ should be the goal of any good science teacher and also the goal of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Moore helps readers better understand the reasoning behind the NGSS and how to bring their challenging vision to life in our classrooms. If teachers focus science lessons with his goals in mind, students will benefit.”
