Brain-compatible science

'Brain-compatible science, second edition' shows teachers how to incorporate practices such as constructivism and inquiry-based learning into their science instruction to help students move beyond memorising facts to deeper levels of understanding.

Linked to National Science Education Standards, this resource also provides an abundance of fully developed science lessons that give students maximum exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking.

Easily adapted to any science curriculum, the lessons include: 

  • Learning objectives, assessment rubrics, and checklists 
  • Background information 
  • Pre-activity discussions with step-by-step procedures 
  • Reproducible pages 
  • Closure and extension suggestions. 

This powerful model of science instruction invites students into a meaningful inquiry, helping them develop positive attitudes about science, and ensuring that they understand important concepts and principles.
