This book uses actual case studies written by teachers to engage in a lively discussion of teaching science at the elementary level. A focus is placed on important issues or dilemmas that occur in elementary science classrooms that require thoughtful decision-making on the part of the teacher.

It deals with topics that all teachers will face: instruction, human relations, cultural awareness, and ethical issues. Coverage also encompasses a variety of challenges regarding the classroom, co-workers, administrators, and parents.

For pre-service and beginning teachers—who will be able to use the book's practical knowledge to develop guidelines and criteria for making their own decisions in the classroom.
