SCIENCE STORIES helps teachers build their own instructional knowledge through the use of narratives about science in real-world classrooms that demonstrate important content, learning, and strategies in action. Expanding Meanings sections following the stories highlight the applicable Teaching Ideas, Science Ideas, and Science Standards. Author Janice Koch's constructivist approach guides teachers in the discovery and exploration of their 'scientific selves' so that they can learn from students' experiences and become effective scientific explorers in their own classrooms.
