Uncovering Student Ideas in Science

Wouldn’t it be helpful to know what your students’ ideas are about a particular science concept before you launch into a new lesson? Reveal students’ preconceptions of fundamental concepts in science with NSTA Press’s award-winning and best-selling Uncovering Student Ideas in Science series. Each volume includes 25 short formative assessment probes that can help pinpoint what your students know (or think they know)—allowing you to monitor student learning and adjust your teaching strategies accordingly. The probes are invaluable formative assessment tools you can use during any point of instruction. Complete with detailed teacher materials. Click here for more information.

Argument-Driven Inquiry in Biology

A well-organized series of 27 field-tested labs that cover molecules and organisms, ecosystems, heredity, and biological evolution. The investigations are designed to be more authentic scientific experiences than traditional laboratory activities. They give your students an opportunity to design their own methods, develop models, collect and analyze data, generate arguments, and critique claims and evidence. Click here for more information.

Argument-Driven Inquiry in Chemistry (ADI)

Thirty field-tested labs cover a broad range of topics related to chemical reactions and matter's structure and properties. You can use them as introduction labs to acquaint students with new content or as application labs to try out a theory, law, or unifying concept. Designed to be much more authentic for instruction than traditional laboratory activities, the investigations in this book give high school students the opportunity to work the way scientists do. They learn to identify questions, develop models, collect and analyze data, generate arguments, and critique and revise their reports. Click here for more information. (Adapted from NSTA.org)
