"This revision of a very successful science methods text includes coverage of methods, activities, and science content. "Teaching Children Science" presents current ideas about teaching children science in a motivating, engaging style that will positively draw students towards the teaching of science to young children." There are nine basic science teaching methods chapters and three potentially free standing parts that focus respectively on how to teach Earth/Space, Life and Physical Science content. Each of these three parts has a lesson and unit plan, followed by chapters that provide science content and chapters that contain activities and demonstrations for children. Through its structure, writing style, and attention to contemporary issues, this volume serves as an important resource in teaching students to create science experiences within the context of discovery learning; thereby, providing students with the necessary skills and knowledge to fully comprehend that they will be teaching children science, not the other way around." For readers with an interest in science and, perhaps, drawing children to the teaching of science as a career choice.

Ambitious and encouraging, this text for prospective and practicing elementary and middle school science teachers, grounded in contemporary science education reform, is a valuable resource that supplies concrete approaches to support the science and science-integrated engineering learning of each and every student. At its core, it is based in the view that science is its own culture, consisting of unique thought processes, specialized communication traditions, and distinctive methods and tools. Using culture as a starting point and connecting it to effective instructional approaches, the authors describe how a teacher can make science accessible to students who are typically pushed to the fringe—especially students of color and English language learners. Written in a conversational style, the authors capture the tone they use when they teach their own students. The readers are recognized as professional partners in the shared efforts to increase access, reduce inequities, and give all students the opportunities to participate in science. Changes in the Third Edition: Features an entirely new chapter on engineering and its integration with science in K-8 settings. Provides fresh attention to the Framework and Next Generation Science Standards while distancing previous attention to process skills and inquiry teaching. Incorporates the latest research about science practices, classroom discussions, and culturally responsive strategies. Retains an accessible writing style that encourages teachers to engage in the challenges of providing equitable and excellent science experiences to all children. Updated companion website: online resources provide links to web materials, slideshows specific to each chapter for course instructors’ use, and supplement handouts for in-class activities: www.routledge.com/cw/Settlage
