    If you are looking to improve your practice in the science classroom here is a book you should read,  5 Practices for Orchestrating Task-Based Discussions in Science by: Jennifer L. Cartier, Margaret S. Smith, Mary Kay Stein, and Danielle K. Ross  It was very well written, the authors gave many supportive diagrams and ideas for clarity. It is an easy read and can be quickly integrated into your practice.
