Exemplary Science in Grades 9-12: Standards-Based Success Stories
Editor, Robert E. Yager. Includes a chapter by College at Brockport faculty member Peter Veronesi and alumnus Karl Biedlingmaier: Stop talking, start listening : turning didactic science teaching on its head.
In this collection of 15 essays, educators describe successful programs they’ve developed to fulfill the National Science Education Standards’ vision for the reform of teaching, assessment, professional development, and content at the high school level. All the visions correspond with the Less Emphasis and More Emphasis conditions that conclude each section of the Standards, characterizing what most teachers and programs should do less of as well as describing the changes needed if real reform is to occur. It ends with a summary chapter by editor Robert Yager on successes and continuing challenges in meeting the Standards’ visions for improving high school science. As Yager notes, “The exemplary programs described in this monograph give inspiration while also providing evidence that the new directions are feasible and worth the energy and effort needed for others to implement changes.
