5 Indispensable Tool of Student Research
I liked the book when I bought it last fall; I was hooked by spring, and totally in love with it after one of the author's workshops. Written for students it is an excellent and appropriate guide for all levels of Student STEM research whether in curriculum units or full-blown projects. Great ways to discuss the nature of science, and terrificu tools that lead the students to develop all the skills we want them to develop. My research students are buying this as a "course text" (early reviews from them support my own).
