Provides solutions for using inquiry-based teaching while meeting standards

This compelling new text practices what it preaches-it uses the inquiry approach to teach the inquiry approach.

The book is developed around six key questions:
1. What is science?
2. Why teach science?
3. What is the nature of scientific knowledge?
4. How do scientists construct knowledge?
5. How do people develop effective reasoning patterns?
6. What teaching methods best facilitate scientific knowledge acquisition?
