Ignite science learning with differentiated instruction

Given that each child learns differently, it makes sense that one type of science instruction does not fit all. Best-selling author Douglas Llewellyn gives teachers standards-based strategies for differentiating inquiry-based science instruction to more effectively meet the needs of all students. This book takes the concept of inquiry-based science education to a deeper level with the author's unique model, including fresh ideas for engaging students and practical tools for differentiating inquiry instruction. The text demonstrates:

  • Methods for determining when and how to provide students with more choices, thereby increasing their ownership and motivation
  • Ways to implement differentiated science inquiry in the main areas of science instruction
  • Strategies for successfully managing the classroom

Differentiated Science Inquiry offers compelling examples and is filled with helpful how-to's for modifying existing activities and labs for effective instruction.
