Written by an experienced science teacher and science teacher educator, this brief volume helps bridge the gap between theory and practice. It offers readers a tool to understand not only what the National Science Education Standards (NSES) are, but also how they can enrich science teaching and learning to promote scientific literacy for all. In addition to offering clear descriptions of each of the six standards, Integrating the National Science Education Standards into Classroom Practice also:

Provides sample activities drawn from contemporary

classrooms, demonstrating the spirit of the NSES in

practice (see pages 1415, 1718, and 3739).

Includes artifacts from K12 classrooms drawn from the

authors experience as a public school teacher to illustrate

teaching, program development, and curricular practices

consistent with the goals of the NSES (see pages 3940,

4446, and 50).

Presents examples of curriculum content and delivery,

performance-based assessment, and models for staff

development in line with the NSES (see pages 64, 93,

and 102).

Illustrates best practices through end-of-chapter

vignettes based on real-life teaching experiences to

emphasize the effectiveness of the NSES (see pages

5253, 136137, and 141142).
