Science in the Multicultural Classroom: A Guide to Teaching and Learning

A revision of this popular methods text reinforces the need to approach teaching with reflective practice to better help every child excel in the science classroom. Organized into four parts, the book helps students address diversity in the classroom, construct a knowledge of science, develop pedagogical content knowledge, and teach with thematic units. Pedagogy throughout each chapter encourages students to interact with the ideas of science education researchers on strategies for addressing the needs of all children. Additionally, each chapter contains a wealth of creative activities that are practical for the classroom. The teaching standards from the National Research Council, the newly developed Pathways Guides, and updated information on technology are now included.
