After distinguishing between elucidatory inquiry (directed toward theory and model construction for understanding and explaining phenomena) and evaluative inquiry (determining the worth of a thing), and providing nine differentiating characteristics Author: Gene V. Glass. The wisdom of scientific inquiry on education The wisdom of scientific inquiry on education Glass, Gene V. GENE V GLASS Laboratory of Educational Research, U i e s t of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado nvriy A few years ago, Ralph Tyler assessed the state of research on science teaching and found it in need of a more theoretical, scientific perspective. This book synthesizes the most current literature and research on scientific inquiry and nature of science in K instruction. It is unique in its presentation of the distinctions and overlaps of inquiry and nature of science as instructional outcomes. Substantially rewritten to focus on inquiry teaching and learning as espoused in the National Science Education Standards, the new edition of Science in Elementary Education: Methods, Concepts, and Inquiries will prepare pre-service teachers to plan, facilitate, adapt, and assess inquiry experiences consistent with today’s science classroom.

Guiding Principles for Scientific Inquiry In Chapter 2 we present evidence that scientific research in education accumulates just as it does in the physical, life, and social sciences. Consequently, we believe that such research would be worthwhile to pursue to build further knowledge about education, and about education policy and practice. Wisdom has been subject to a number of definitions, including a system of logic for understanding the world, a notion that is the basis of modern science. Wisdom has also been considered the human. The National Science Education Standards (NSES), published in , recognizes the importance of the topic and lists both abilities and understandings of inquiry (see the NSES, Inquiry and Educational Research section). 9 As discussed in the NSES, middle school students are naturally curious about the world. Inquiry-based instruction offers an. The book is divided into 16 chapters, covering: differences in reasoning and scientific thought, starting a research project, writing a literature review, ethics in social science research, how theory relates to research, research design, causality, measurement, sampling, survey research, experimental design, qualitative interviews and focus.

Researchers, historians, and philosophers of science have debated the nature of scientific research in education for more than years. Recent enthusiasm for "evidence-based" policy and practice in education—now codified in the federal law that authorizes the bulk of elementary and secondary education programs—have brought a new sense of urgency to understanding the ways in which the. From the reviews: “This book examines and synthesizes research on a wide variety of contemporary theoretical and practical trends and issues about including inquiry and NOS in science teaching, science teacher education, and research in science education. an appropriate resource book for science teachers, science teacher educators, science education researchers, and graduate s: 4.
