Every summer, I try to pick some topic to read about personally to help make me a better teacher. This summer, I have decided to become a better science teacher. To aid me in this endeavor, I have picked up a couple of books on inquiry-based science teaching.
The first book on my list is Eight Essentials of Inquiry-Based Science, K-8 by Elizabeth Hammerman (ISBN 1-4129-1499-X). Over the next couple of weeks, I will be reflecting on my reading and learning as I go through this book. This book is written as a staff development resource, so I hope that any of my colleagues who might be interested in learning along with me would pick up a copy of the book.
Whether you read it or not, I will appreciate your comments about my posts.
