Science Investigations for the Classroom Book 2: Developing Students' Skills as Self Managing Online Researchers
Science Investigations for the Classroom - Book 2 - Developing students’ skills as self-managing online researchers of any science topic
SCIENCE INVESTIGATIONS FOR THE CLASSROOM – 2 TITLES IN SERIES
In providing support for any science investigation in the classroom, Book 2 concentrates on computer-based activities that can be done outside of the laboratory. Another focus is on critical thinking: it gets students working on the process skills they need as scientists – defining aims, developing methods, collecting data, using criteria to evaluate information and forming conclusions. Expect your students to be challenged. Who do they believe and why? Would they cheat – and, if so, when? Are primary sources of information better than secondary sources? In a world of fake news, information overload and crowd mentality, this book will help your students learn how to pick out the valid data from the misinformation and to reach their own independent conclusions.
