Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards: A Guide for Teaching and Learning

This practical guide to teaching inquiry and teaching through inquiry is the long awaited addendum to the 1995 National Science Education Standards. This terrific new book illustrates how inquiry-based education helps students learn science content, master how to do science, and truly understand the nature of science. It will be an important resource for all educators, but especially relevant to those who help others understand why science can't be taught "the way it used to be."

This is one of those on-line books that can be used by students for research
without breaking their pocketbooks.

Technical Remarks:

The National Academy Press has a tremendous resource for accessing books
on-line. It's easy to see the table of contents, index, references, or to jump
right to the page of interest. I have not yet found a browser that can't handle
these resources, but if you plan to read the entire book, page changes are
slow, so you may prefer to buy it!
