Becoming Scientists: Inquiry-Based Teaching in Diverse Classrooms, Grades 3-5
Good science starts with a question. Using inquiry science, children discover answers to their questions in the same way that scientists do — with experiments, predictions, observations, and conjectures. The book takes a look into real classrooms where teachers practice inquiry science and engage students in the practices outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards. The authors show teachers how to build on students' varied experiences and background knowledge, respond to different language needs of ELLs, and manage a diverse classroom during inquiry science exploration.
