The achievement gaps in science and the under-representation of minorities in science-related fields have long been a concern of the nation. This book examines the roots of this problem by providing a comprehensive, 'state of the field' analysis and synthesis of current research on science education for minority students. Research from a range of theoretical and methodological perspectives is brought to bear on the question of how and why our nation's schools have failed to provide equitable learning opportunities with all students in science education. From this wealth of investigative data, the authors propose a research agenda for the field of science education - identifying strengths and weaknesses in the literature to date as well as the most urgent priorities for those committed to the goals of equity and excellence in science education.Using this curriculum, university interns taught science to students in kindergarten through 5th grade in 62 classrooms at three elementary schools near the U.S.-Mexican border. They taught six one-hour lessons over the course of six weeks, with half of the instruction in Spanish and half in ... matter for 3rd grade, the water cycle and weather for 4th grade, and the ecosystem and solar system for 5th grade.
