According to Tweed, A, in “ Designing Effective Science Instruction”, Science teachers should be more effective when planning and implementing science content by focusing on some important strategies in order to provide students with meaningful opportunities and refine their science understandings in authentic contexts. One of these important strategies is an engaging student in scientific inquiry. Many science educators think that inquiry-based instruction leads to better science understandings and practices of concepts and develop the logic, thinking, and skills. As a result, they should use instructional techniques to engage students in science inquiry by asking questions that can be classified in many ways such as what, where, how, and …show more content…
This kind of assessment enhances thinking about how students learn, what they should learn in science classes, and the relationship between lesson 's goals and assessment during science instruction. So that necessary instructional adjustments can be made to close the gap between students’ current understanding and the desired goals. The purpose of formative assessment is not to obtain grades, but to provide teachers with information that enable them make adjustments to their instruction. In order to improve their learning, effective science teachers use assessment questions to gather data from students at the beginning of the lesson in order to determine what students know about the topic. Moreover, One effective strategy we can use it to apply in order to develop student understanding is planning for collaborative science discourse. Science teachers need to let students utilize discourse to accurately gauge student comprehension and …show more content…
Traditionally, The learning environment has been viewed in terms of physical space and the teacher’s arrangement of facilities within the space. Recently, this view of learning environment has been expanded to include aspects of school and classroom climate including the interactions among students, and between teachers and students. This features the importance of matching between students’ preferred learning environments and their academic success. There are some important strategies of creating and organizing a positive learning environment. One significant strategy is that science teachers should teach students to think scientifically. Science teachers must understand science and use their understanding when they plan and teach science, and posses a broad understanding of the nature of science for many reasons. One important reason of understanding the nature of science is that to make accurate interpretations and coherent presentations of the discipline, and to prepare to use the strategy of promoting scientific thinking, thus teaching students how to think scientifically. Therefore, students should be taught a unit about the nature of science that address thinking and working the daily practices of scientists. Another significant reason of science
