Science Detective Series SeriesNew

Author: Various

Publisher: Various

The mind-building lessons and activities in these books teach topics and skills drawn from state and national science standards to prepare students for more advanced science courses and new assessments that measure reasoning, reading comprehension, and writing in science. Students read lessons that include a variety of charts, tables, and graphs. Then they answer critical thinking questions to improve their understanding of the science concepts and develop their reading comprehension and inferential and deductive thinking skills. Students can't just scan the story for answers—they must carefully analyze and synthesize the information from the text, charts, tables, and graphs to explain and support their answers.Many questions in these books ask students to use complete sentences to explain their thinking. The ability to express their thoughts—supported by evidence—in writing, is not only important in science assessment, it is essential when communicating with other people in school and work. It also promotes better understanding of the concepts being studied. The questions in Science Detectiveฎ are modeled after questions found on science assessments but require more critical thinking. There is a growing trend to evaluate responses to open-ended questions in the context of logical reasoning, and many science students score poorly on these test items. The carefully designed questions in in these books will not only develop thinking, reading, and writing skills, but will also familiarize your students with questions found on contemporary science assessments.Teaching SupportIncludes teacher and student introductions, a chart of topics and key ideas to help select activities, and detailed answers.
