Abstract:

"This book encourages scientific literacy by showing you how to teach the understanding and thinking skills your students need to explore real-world questions like these : Should schools charge a 'fat tax' to discourage kids from eating unhealthy foods? Should local governments lower speed limits to reduce traffic fatalities? Should pharmaceutical companies be allowed to advertise prescription drugs directly to consumers? At the core of the exploration is the Socioscientific Issues Framework. The framework gives students practice in the research, analysis, and argumentation necessary to grapple with difficult questions and build scientific literacy"--Page 4 of cover.
