Russ Colson, Anthropology and Earth Sciences, has recently published a book on earth science for secondary science teachers and others interested in the nature of science and the nature of science teaching. The book, “Learning to Read the Earth and Sky,” tells stories from the classroom, stories from real research, and offers example classroom investigations. It examines how classroom science and real research can be alike, with reference to the practices of science recommended by the Next Generation Science Standards.

The book is available at the NSTA Press bookstore and on Amazon.
