Summary

Teaching Inquiry Science in Secondary Schools is a mainstream text for secondary science teaching methods courses that is structured around the following 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 (both conceptual knowledge construction and reasoning pattern development)?The text does an excellent job of providing both theoretically sound and empirically based answers to these questions. The book provides an excellent introduction to inquiry-oriented (i.e., learning cycle) teaching methods. Several examples of good inquiry lessons are also provided, as are several examples of classroom management techniques, lesson planning procedures, and effective evaluation procedures.
