Science Workshop: Reading, Writing, and Thinking Like a Scientist

What does a Science Workshop look like in a real classroom? How do Science Workshop teachers plan? Where does literacy instruction come into play? How do you track children's learning? This second edition, chock-full of new information and ideas, leaves teachers even more eager to implement an inquiry-based science curriculum. New features:

  • A new introduction providing a theoretical overview and a new final chapter about the future of science and "action research."
  • Updated plans for organizing the Workshop from Charles Pearce and Jeanne Reardon
  • Two new chapters, by Donna Dieckman and Jeanne Reardon, focus on science reading and writing to support inquiry
  • A new chapter on Assessment by classroom teacher Donna Dieckman
  • All new resources including websites by resource specialist Donna Neutze

Practical suggestions, strategies and materials abound, and living examples demonstrate how a Science Workshop fosters authentic inquiry across the curriculum, and supports a classroom where choice and interaction thrive. This new edition adds 10 more years of experience and ideas for sharing inquiry with young people.
