The author of this site believes that for a person to become what they are--rather than what society makes them out to be--individual responsibility and courage are required. He goes on to explain that good ideas should be borrowed and incorporated into one's personal philosophy. To find those good ideas, however, requires a willingness to think, a willingness to change, and courage to explore. Among the good ideas presented in this complex collection of materials are some summaries of resources appropriate for Elementary Science. For example, according to the author, the National Center for Improving Science Education recommends that elementary schools design curricula that introduce nine scientific concepts. A concise description of the nine realms of understanding that elementary school students should master is presented. The link to Resources then proceeds to a list of a few of the many excellent science books available for elementary school children, endorsed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science for its recommendations, from The New York Times Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children, by the National Science Resources Center; and from Phyllis Marcuccio at the National Science Teachers Association. The link back to Parents and Schools provides ways parents can help improve elementary school science. The author claims that whenever a contribution is not original, a note indicates its source. Many of the book references link to Amazon.com (See, for example, Science Play: Beginning Discoveries for 2-To 6-Year-Olds - Jill Frankel Hauser)
