Science Curriculum Topic Study
Bridging the Gap Between Three-Dimensional Standards, Research, and Practice

Second Edition

A Joint Publication with the National Science Teachers Association



352 pages | Corwin

Today’s science standards reflect a new vision of teaching and learning. | How to make this vision happen
 Scientific literacy for all students requires a deep understanding of the three dimensions of science education: disciplinary content, scientific and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts. If you actively engage students in using and applying these three dimensions within curricular topics, they will develop a scientifically-based and coherent view of the natural and designed world.
 
The latest edition of this best-seller, newly mapped to the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and updated with new standards and research-based resources, will help science educators make the shifts needed to reflect current practices in curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The methodical study process described in this book will help readers intertwine content, practices, and crosscutting concepts. The book includes:
• An increased emphasis on STEM, including topics in science, technology, and engineering
• 103 separate curriculum topic study guides, arranged in six categories
• Connections to content knowledge, curricular and instructional implications, concepts and specific ideas, research on student learning, K-12 articulation, and assessment
Teachers and those who support teachers will appreciate how Curriculum Topic Study helps them reliably analyze and interpret their standards and translate them into classroom practice, thus ensuring that students achieve a deeper understanding of the natural and designed world.
