In The Press

"For years Doug Llewellyn's books have provided a strong foundation for both beginning and veteran teachers as they integrated real inquiry experiences into science classes. Today teachers seeking deeper understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards are asking how inquiry fits into the broader array of Science and Engineering Practices/ This updated guide has the answers, expending and enriching the process of inquiry by showing how such practices as scientific argumentation fit. Llewellyn's model of teaching and his rich array of practical examples can help every teacher and student to experiences that clearly illustrate what scientists and engineers do. This is certainly a guide for the next generation of great teachers."
