Summary "The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world's largest federation of scientific and engineering societies and the publisher of the review journal Science Books & Films, strives for national improvements in science literacy and reform. This work continues their original efforts in reform issues and practical hands-on training in the classroom, but it is aimed towards school media specialists and youth services librarians." "Here you will find the tools to help you in curriculum collaborations with teachers, including hands-on, supplemental activities for science instruction in the library; Web references that develop science literacy; a guide to selecting the best science books for children; information on fund-raising, projects, and grant writing; and an annotated bibliography of science tradebooks." "Written and compiled by experts in the field, this is a comprehensive approach for librarians actively involved in science, mathematics, and technology learning."--Jacket
