About the eBook

Inspire a deep and lasting love of science in young students

The way students view scientific knowledge is largely dependent on their early experiences with science instruction. With so much attention paid to student performance relative to the rest of the world, it is imperative for science teachers to engage elementary learners in ways that foster prolonged interest, deep conceptual understanding, and success in middle and high school as well as beyond. 

Combining the latest findings in the science of learning with student- and teacher-tested techniques, From Snorkelers to Scuba Divers provides the framework essential for encouraging students to shed their snorkels and plunge into the world of science.  Readers will find:

  • Evidence-based, research-driven strategies that encourage both deep thinking and conceptual understanding
  • Classroom examples that demonstrate each aspect of the standards-based instructional framework in action
  • Professional development tasks that provide teachers with support in implementing strategies for students at all levels, from surface to deep  

This teacher-friendly resource is invaluable for preparing learners to approach science with creativity, confidence, and insight.
