Grounded in National Science Foundation (NSF) funded-research, Supporting Grade 5-8 Students in Constructing Explanations in Science and DVD provides middle grades science teachers with an instructional framework that breaks down the practice of scientific explanation into manageable components---claim, evidence, reasoning---and offers concrete examples of what this scientific inquiry practice looks like when it is successfully implemented in real classrooms. The chapters guide teachers step-by-step through presenting the framework for students; creating learning tasks involving scientific explanation; providing curricular scaffolds (that fade over time) to support students developing explanations; developing scientific explanation assessment tasks; and using the information from assessment tasks to inform instruction. By incorporating this framework into curriculum materials, instructional strategies, and assessments, many schools have already witnessed its power to enhance students' conceptual understanding and ability to think and communicate scientifically while also affording teachers powerful opportunities to view student thinking and better adapt instruction to all students' needs. "I would encourage others to use [this book] as a resource for a professional learning community or department discussion group and the like... absolutely I would recommend it---why? It is simply good for our students' developing understanding of science..."---Pamela M. Pelletier, Senior Program Director, Science K-12, Boston Public Schools, Boston, Massachusetts "[This book] can easily be used to guide middle school teams to collaboratively work together to ask higher order thinking questions in any core content area. This type of questioning leads to great classroom discourse, therefore engaging students in using claims, evidence, and reasoning."---Kendra Walters Durham, Science Teacher, Wester Middle School, Frisco, Texas

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
