New NSTA Press Book Offers Innovative Strategies to Help Teachers and Students Connect Energy Ideas Across Science Disciplines

Teaching Energy Across the Sciences, K–12 offers strategies to help students grasp a subject that connects all science disciplines. Just published by NSTA Press, the book gives teachers tools to improve students’ understanding of how energy works in many contexts, inside and outside the classroom.

“For students to develop an integrated understanding of energy that applies both inside and outside of school, we must clearly show students how energy can provide a powerful perspective from which they can reliably and consistently view phenomena from any scientific context or discipline,” writes Jeffrey Nordine, the book’s editor.

To help teachers explain energy consistently, the book’s three main sections cover the following:

  • Understanding why energy is an important concept, what students need to know about it, and how to bring the concept in line with the Next Generation Science Standards
  • Using five central ideas about energy to teach the subject consistently across the life, physical, and Earth and space sciences, and in all grades
  • Providing the professional development and systemic support teachers need to adopt this book’s approaches

Teaching Energy Across the Sciences, K–12 is accessible and easy for teachers to use, even if they don’t have a strong science background. It clarifies—rather than complicates—existing energy instruction and what students need to know.
