✏Forensic Science Under Siege Book Summary : Forensic science laboratories' reputations have increasingly come under fire. Incidents of tainted evidence, false reports, allegations of negligence, scientifically flawed testimony, or - worse yet - perjury in in-court testimony, have all served to cast a shadow over the forensic sciences. Instances of each are just a few of the quality-related charges made in the last few years. Forensic Science Under Siege is the first book to integrate and explain these problematic trends in forensic science. The issues are timely, and are approached from an investigatory, yet scholarly and research-driven, perspective. Leading experts are consulted and interviewed, including directors of highly visible forensic laboratories, as well as medical examiners and coroners who are commandeering the discussions related to these issues. Interviewees include Henry Lee, Richard Saferstein, Cyril Wecht, and many others. The ultimate consequences of all these pressures, as well as the future of forensic science, has yet to be determined. This book examines these challenges, while also exploring possible solutions (such as the formation of a forensic science consortium to address specific legislative issues). It is a must-read for all forensic scientists. Provides insight on the current state of forensic science, demands, and future direction as provided by leading experts in the field Consolidates the current state of standards and best-practices of labs across disciplines Discusses a controversial topic that must be addressed for political support and financial funding of forensic science to improve

✏Effective Content Reading Strategies to Develop Mathematical and Scientific Literacy Book Summary : Success in mathematics and science requires students to process and comprehend various forms of text; yet, many teachers feel ill-equipped to promote the development of literacy skills within the context of developing conceptual understanding of mathematics and science. Many content area literacy resources do not provide an adequate development of the complexities involved in dealing with mathematics and science texts. This work presents important background information on the reading and process and classroom tested strategies which include implementation information and ideas for modifying the strategy to diverse needs. These classroom examples support teachers and educational specialists as they design instructional experiences to facilitate both students’ conceptualization of important subject area content and the tools necessary for students to develop the literacy skills necessary to be successful in today’s text rich educational learning environments.

✏Science and Literacy a Natural Fit Book Summary : “There is a need to challenge students to think and talk and write about science as well as read about it and do it. Developing students' knowledge of science and their knowledge of literacy must be brought together in our schools and teachers need to learn effective ways to do this." Integrating science and literacy instruction has often meant having students read about science. But Karen Worth and her colleagues know that we improve both science and literacy achievement with integrated instruction that goes far beyond science reading. They know that understanding science means being able to think, talk, and write effectively about science. Science and Literacy is the professional development program that makes it happen. Professional development leaders will find what they need to help teachers understand and use the many connections between balanced literacy instruction and experiential science. Organized around eight complete modules, the comprehensive Guide shows how to make talk and writing essential tools in science inquiry. The eight modules cover: Foundations, from the nature of scientific inquiry to the importance of teacher questions (modules 1 and 2) Classroom talk, from creating a culture of talk to gathering ideas and making meaning (modules 3, 4, and 5) Writing, from the anatomy of science notebooks to their implementation and to writing beyond the notebook (modules 6, 7, and 8). Each one includes an overview of the key content, an outline of the preparation and materials needed, step-by-step session directions including how to use the DVD materials. There is also ample guidance for customizing the program to meet your needs. The DVD includes: Classroom videos with transcripts and notes Handouts, take-home packets, and mini-lessons Student samples Participant readings A bibliography for further readings Facilitator slides. Science and Literacy is the guidebook to strengthen science knowledge as it develops authentic literacy skills. “Just as science writing and reading can be done as part of literacy instruction, students' literacy skills can be reinforced in the authentic context of inquiry-based science. The relationship is a reciprocal one, enriching students' learning and skill development in both domains."

✏Understanding Scientific Understanding Book Summary : It is widely acknowledged that a central aim of science is to achieve understanding of the world around us, and that possessing such understanding is highly important in our present-day society. But what does it mean to achieve this understanding? What precisely is scientific understanding? These are philosophical questions that have not yet received satisfactory answers. While there has been an ongoing debate about the nature of scientific explanation since Carl Hempel advanced his covering-law model in 1948, the related notion of understanding has been largely neglected, because most philosophers regarded understanding as merely a subjective by-product of objective explanations. By contrast, this book puts scientific understanding center stage. It is primarily a philosophical study, but also contains detailed historical case studies of scientific practice. In contrast to most existing studies in this area, it takes into account scientists' views and analyzes their role in scientific debate and development. The aim of Understanding Scientific Understanding is to develop and defend a philosophical theory of scientific understanding that can describe and explain the historical variation of criteria for understanding actually employed by scientists. The theory does justice to the insights of such famous physicists as Werner Heisenberg and Richard Feynman, while bringing much-needed conceptual rigor to their intuitions. The scope of the proposed account of understanding is the natural sciences: while the detailed case studies derive from physics, examples from other sciences are presented to illustrate its wider validity.
