APPENDIX A:
Publishers And Suppliers

INFORMATION ABOUT APPENDIX A

Appendix A provides names, addresses, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail or Web site addresses when available, for publishers and suppliers of books and materials annotated in this guide. The list is arranged alphabetically.

Some companies distribute print publications and curriculum materials or science apparatus as well, and some only one or the other of these categories. Before placing an order, readers should contact the publishers or suppliers directly for current ordering information (including shipping charges).

In compiling the guide, every effort was made to provide accurate, up-to-date bibliographic information. Annually updated information can be found in directories such as NSTA Science Education Suppliers (see 8.22) or in standard references such as Books in Print at local libraries or bookstores.

The annotations in this guide provide International Standard Book Numbers (ISBNs), when those were assigned, to help readers obtain commercially distributed materials. Some publishers use their own catalog numbers, however, so publishers should be consulted before ordering an item.

Readers are urged to seek out local sources for commercial products and recycled materials. They may also want to contact the new suppliers that are continually opening their doors.

With age-appropriate, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and sound teaching practices, middle school science can capture the interest and energy of adolescent students and expand their understanding of the world around them.

Resources for Teaching Middle School Science, developed by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC), is a valuable tool for identifying and selecting effective science curriculum materials that will engage students in grades 6 through 8. The volume describes more than 400 curriculum titles that are aligned with the National Science Education Standards.

This completely new guide follows on the success of Resources for Teaching Elementary School Science, the first in the NSRC series of annotated guides to hands-on, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and other resources for science teachers.

The curriculum materials in the new guide are grouped in five chapters by scientific area--Physical Science, Life Science, Environmental Science, Earth and Space Science, and Multidisciplinary and Applied Science. They are also grouped by type--core materials, supplementary units, and science activity books.

Each annotation of curriculum material includes a recommended grade level, a description of the activities involved and of what students can be expected to learn, a list of accompanying materials, a reading level, and ordering information.

The curriculum materials included in this book were selected by panels of teachers and scientists using evaluation criteria developed for the guide. The criteria reflect and incorporate goals and principles of the National Science Education Standards. The annotations designate the specific content standards on which these curriculum pieces focus.

In addition to the curriculum chapters, the guide contains six chapters of diverse resources that are directly relevant to middle school science. Among these is a chapter on educational software and multimedia programs, chapters on books about science and teaching, directories and guides to science trade books, and periodicals for teachers and students.

Another section features institutional resources. One chapter lists about 600 science centers, museums, and zoos where teachers can take middle school students for interactive science experiences. Another chapter describes nearly 140 professional associations and U.S. government agencies that offer resources and assistance.

Authoritative, extensive, and thoroughly indexed--and the only guide of its kind--Resources for Teaching Middle School Science will be the most used book on the shelf for science teachers, school administrators, teacher trainers, science curriculum specialists, advocates of hands-on science teaching, and concerned parents.
