9780072563955: Teaching Science to Children: An Inquiry Approach

This comprehensive, easy-to-use text contains more than 300 science activities for the classroom. The text’s focus on the inquiry approach ties it to the inquiry-oriented National Science Education Standards for science teaching issued by the National Research Council. Each of the inquiry activities contains combined discussions of methods and content, and the text helps students overcome science anxiety by showing them how easy it is to teach science using a simple, consistent three-step approach to each of the activities (set induction, investigation, and resolution).

About the Author:

Alfred E. Friedl is Emeritus Professor of Education at Kent State University. He received the first eight years of his education in a one-room elementary school in Minnesota. He attended high school in Albany, Minnesota, and received an undergraduate degree from Saint Cloud State College. Professor Friedl began his teaching career as an elementary school teacher in Minnesota and California. After receiving his doctorate in Education from Colorado State University, he served as a curriculum coordinator for the San Diego County Department of Education. He also taught extension classes for San Diego State University and UCLA. He later moved to Kent State University where he taught for twenty-five years. In addition to winning an “outstanding teacher” award from Kent State, he also won a national teaching award for writing and presenting a 13-week television series entitled, “Teaching Children about Space Science.” Professor Friedl has written extensively for more than three decades—authoring or co-authoring more than twenty books. He co-authored his first book, YOUR SCIENCE FAIR, while still a sixth grade teacher. His most recent books include MODERN PHYSICAL SCIENCE and EXERCISES AND INVESTIGATIONS, both high school science textbooks.
