Ready, Set, SCIENCE! - Putting Research To Work In K-8 Science Classrooms, a publication of the National Research Council (NRC), was developed and published with support from the Merck Institute for Science Education (MISE). This practitioner's guide explains how the latest research on teaching and learning can be put into practice in K-8 science classes. Using examples and case studies, it guides teachers and science specialists in creating curriculum and classroom experiences based on the findings published in the 2006 NRC report TAKING SCIENCE TO SCHOOL: Learning and Teaching Science in Grades K-8.
Ready, Set, SCIENCE! serves as a resource in the planning and implementation of MISE professional development programs, including the Academy for Leadership in Science Instruction.
