Reviews

"This resource is an informative, thought-provoking read, and it's essential for anyone serious about understanding the science education research that supports the NGSS."

-Victoria May, Assistant Dean of Arts & Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis

"I like the way Brown and Concannon articulate the importance and usefulness of evidence-based inquiry for teachers and students. Their emphasis on 'understanding from experiences' is refreshingly reminiscent of John Dewey and the need to not only have a child's experience at the center of our teaching but to also showcase the importance of 'Science as method' not just as subject matter. This book is very useful for teachers as they work to engage learners in science by 'providing students with immediate experiences to form accurate understandings'."

-Robert W. Blake, Jr. Professor and Chair, Towson University
