Bundle free pdf Teaching Inquiry Science in Middle and Secondary Schools This textbook provides an introduction to inquiry-oriented secondary science teaching methods. Developed around six key questions, this book stands out from the others by practicing what it preaches- it uses the inquiry approach to teach the inquiry approach. In addition, it provides tools teachers can use in their classrooms immediately, such as lesson planning procedures, classroom management techniques and effective evaluation procedures. Essentials of Science Classroom Assessment Using a competence-based approach filled with practical examples and case scenarios, this concise text helps K-12 teachers master both traditional and innovative science assessment methods. The author's approach, consistent with National Science Education Standards, helps teachers apply science assessment methods to classroom instruction and evaluate their impact on student learning.

About Anton E. Lawson

Dr. Anton Lawson's career in science education began in the late 1960s in California where he taught middle school science and mathematics for three years before completing his Ph.D. at the University of Oklahoma and moving to Purdue University in 1973. Lawson continued his research career at the University of California Berkeley in 1974, and then moved to Arizona State University in 1977, where he currently conducts research and teaches courses in biology, in biology teaching methods, and in research methods. Lawson has directed over 100 workshops for teachers, mostly on inquiry teaching methods, and has published over 200 articles and over 20 books including Science Teaching and the Development of Thinking (Wadsworth: Belmont, CA, 1995), Biology: A Critical Thinking Approach, (Addison Wesley: Menlo Park, CA, 1994), and The Neurological Basis of Learning, Development and Discovery, (Kluwer: Dordrecht, The Netherlands, 2003). Lawson's most recent book is an introductory biology text called Biology: An Inquiry Approach, (Kendall/Hunt- Dubuque, IA, 2004). Lawson is perhaps best known for his research articles in science education, which have three times been judged to be the most significant articles of the year by the National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST). He has also received NARST's career award for Distinguished Contributions to Science Education Research as well as the Outstanding Science Educator of the Year Award by the Association for the Education of Teachers in Science. Xiufeng Liu is Associate Professor of Science Education at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He received his doctorate in science education from the University of British Columbia in 1993. He was a high school chemistry teacher in China, a research associate at the China National Institute for Educational Research (CNIE), and a science teacher educator in Canada before his current position. He conducts research in the closely related areas of technology-enhanced science assessment, applications of measurement models in science education, conceptual change in science, and science curriculum policies. He has published over 30 refereed articles in key science education journals, 5 books, 15 book chapters, and presented numerous papers at national and international conferences. Dr. Liu teaches courses entitled Measurement and Evaluation of Science Teaching, Seminar on Science Teaching, Seminar on Science Curricula, and Technology for Science Teaching. In addition, he conducts an annual summer science assessment workshop for teachers, and is frequently invited to give talks and workshops on science assessment including Rasch measurement.
