[Read the full review]
Questions, Claims, and Evidence presents a new approach to science teaching that engages students fully by linking literacy and inquiry.
Step by step, Questions, Claims, and Evidence immerses students in scientific inquiry and writing. It transforms experiments from following directions and making notes into chances to pose and answer questions that interest students.
But Questions, Claims, and Evidence doesn’t only support student learning. It improves your science teaching by:
• broadening your professional knowledge with the latest research and theory
• providing self-evaluation tools for monitoring your performance
• answering frequently asked questions about the Questions, Claims, and Evidence approach.
Try something new that will motivate your students and improve their writing abilities. Read Questions, Claims, and Evidence, and don’t be surprised if your students agree with this fifth grader’s sentiment: “I love the way that we do science now because I learn more and I get to do more. I actually feel like I am smart.”
