The go-to guide for engineering curricula, grades 6-8 : choosing and using the best instructional materials for your students by Cary I. (Ivan) Sneider( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many science teachers the integration of technology and engineering into the science curriculum will mean a new way of teaching, new concepts and skills for their students to learn, and new assessments that will measure their students' progress and their own capabilities as teachers. The source of this concern is a publication by the National Research Council of a new blueprint for science education standards, appropriately titled A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Core Ideas and Crosscutting Concepts (NRC 2012). The Framework is currently severing as the blueprint for Next Generation Science Standards, aimed at replacing the current patchwork of state science standards with a common core, as has already been done in mathematics and English language arts. Since these documents raise engineering design to the same level as science inquiry there is no question that science teachers will be required to teach technology and engineering alongside science. This book is intended to help middle school teachers by assembling, under a single cover, a comprehensive commentary on the readymade curriculum materials that are currently on the market for integrating Technology and Engineering into Science classes, and that are appropriate for different levels of the 6-8 spectrum. All of the curricula summarized in this book have been under development for several years, tested by teachers and their students from a wide range of communities, and revised based on feedback. In many cases they are also supported by research studies of effectiveness. Each chapter looks closely at a specific curriculum and describes one set of instructional materials from this curriculum. Chapter authors illustrate, as vividly as possible, what the curriculum looks like in the classroom, what learning goals it is intended to accomplish, and how it will help Middle school teachers address the Next Generation Science Standards. Also included is a helpful table, which lists each of the curriculum materials included in the book and grade level for which it is intended. Readers who are already familiar with the Framework and Next Generation Science Standards, and are mostly concerned with choosing curricula for a given grade or grade span can use the table to find the chapters that are most relevant to their needs. Readers who would like to know how technology and engineering are being integrated in the new standards, and why it will make a difference this time around-will find answers to these questions in the remainder of this introduction

Mapping fish habitats : teacher's guide by Katharine Barrett( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teacher's guide to 4 activities designed to introduce students in grades 6-10 to systematic sampling methods as applied to fish in a classroom aquarium. Teams of students observe, record, and map where the fish swim, then design experiments to find out how changing the aquarium environment affects the fishes' home ranges. "Should be useful to ... science centers, museums, schools, and community groups."
Messages from space : the solar system and beyond : teacher's guide by Kevin Beals( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building on collaborative work between SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute and the Lawrence Hall of Science, Messages from Space takes advantage of our fascination with extraterrestrial to catalyze study of the solar system and beyond. The activities create an exciting context for students to engage in creative learning, gaining a great deal of astronomical knowledge. The unit begins when students attempt to decode a fictitious message from outer space. Imagining that they are SEIT scientists, students begin to analyze, where, in the solar system and beyond, there may be conditions favorable for life. They investigate how our solar system and other planetary systems may have formed, and consider how what we know about the solar system and other planetary systems fits into a bigger picture of the universe. Throughout, students consider whether life could exist "out there" and, if so, how we might communicate with those life forms. Students also gain valuable experience distinguishing science fact from sensationalized fiction

The Architecture of reform : GEMS and national standards by Cary I Sneider( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world of science education is rich with guidelines on what the science curriculum should include, but impoverished in time and money to create real programs for students that reflect these guidelines effectively. This handbook is designed to assist teachers and administrators in charting a course through the maze of new national and state standards, benchmarks, and frameworks. Part I is intended to familiarize readers with key documents in science education reform so that they can decide which documents they want to spend more time on, then move ahead in the planning process. This section, comprised of four chapters, is written from the viewpoint of an imaginary writer living in the 21st century, when the reforms have been successfully implemented. Chapter 1 puts current initiatives into historical perspective; chapter 2 describes each of the major documents; chapter 3 discusses the common vision of all of the reform programs; and chapter 4 explores the metaphor of a House of Science to represent the knowledge, abilities, and attitudes that students develop as they become scientifically literate. Part ii contains 3 chapters and relates the vision and goals of these key reform documents to the gems series. Chapter 5 describes how the gems series supports reform goals; chapter 6 discusses building a curriculum with gems units; and chapter 7 provides suggestions for engaging in local curriculum planning. This document contains five appendices which include House of Science Transparency Masters for use in presentations to the education community. (Pvd)
