Resources for Teaching Science Set

Taking Science to School provides a comprehensive picture of what we know about teaching and learning science from kindergarten through eighth grade. By looking at a broad range of questions, this book provides a basic foundation for guiding science teaching and supporting students in their learning. Learning Science in Informal Environments draws together disparate literatures, synthesizes the state of knowledge, and articulates a common framework for the next generation of research on learning science in informal environments across a life span.

Ready, Set, SCIENCE! and Surrounded by Science provide examples for putting research into practice. Designed to help teachers translate research into the classroom, Ready, Set, SCIENCE! is an indispensable and extremely practical resource for teachers in the elementary grades and their support communities. Surrounded by Science is an invaluable tool, helping teachers draw upon informal and after-school sectors to enhance and extend student learning beyond the walls of classrooms.

Utilizing these resources from the Academies as the basis for professional development of elementary school science teachers will have a powerful effect in helping teachers, students, parents, and school administrators understand and appreciate that science learning can be everywhere.
