Description - Teaching Science Thinking by Christopher Moore

Teach your students how to think like scientists. This book shows you practical ways to incorporate science thinking in your classroom using simple "Thinking Tasks" that you can insert into any lesson. What is science thinking and how can you possibly teach and assess it? How is science thinking incorporated into the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and how can it be weaved into your curriculum? This book answers these questions.

This practical book provides a clear, research-verified framework for helping students develop scientific thinking as required by the NGSS. Your students will not be memorizing content but will become engaged in the real work scientists do, using critical thinking patterns such as:

  • Recognizing patterns,
  • Inventing new hypotheses based on observations,
  • Separating causes from correlations,
  • Determining relevant variables and isolating them,
  • Testing hypotheses, and
  • Thinking about their own thinking and the relative value of evidence.

The book includes a variety of sample classroom activities and rubrics, as well as frameworks for creating your own tools. Designed for the busy teacher, this book also shows you quick and simple ways to add deep science thinking to existing lessons.

Author Biography - Christopher Moore

Christopher Moore is a former high-school physical science teacher and currently an associate professor of physics education. Dr. Moore leads two research groups, with one studying novel electronic device engineering and the other focusing on science education. His education research focuses on the development of scientific reasoning and science process skills. Dr. Moore is the recipient of a Fulbright Scholar grant to develop pre- and in-service teacher training on science process at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. He has also worked with the Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla in Puebla, Mexico on teacher training workshops for Mexican physics teachers, as well as work as a consultant and workshop leader for the Prince Edward County Public Schools in Virginia. Dr. Moore is currently the principle investigator for a program funded by the National Science Foundation to develop and assess course materials that develop reasoning and process skills.
