If Hollywood were filming this sequel, the studio would call it Probes 2: More Battles Against Misunderstandings. Like the blockbuster that came before it, Volume 2 of Uncovering Student Ideas in Science will reveal the surprising misconceptions students bring to the classroom so you can adjust your teaching to replace those ideas with a sound understanding of science. The field-tested features from Volume 1 are all here. The 25 new probes are short, easy-to-administer activities designed to determine what students at every grade level know (or think they know) about core science topics. The probes come all ready to reproduce. Accompanying teacher materials explain science content, note links to national standards, and suggest grade-appropriate ways to present material so students will learn it accurately. But where Volume 1 emphasized physical science, Volume 2 covers more life science and Earth and space science probes. New topic areas include forms of matter, changes in matter, living things and life processes, rocks and landforms, the day/night cycle, and objects in the night sky. Volume 2 also suggests ways to embed the probes throughout the course of your instruction, not just when starting a unit or topic.
