Professor Feather has national impact through textbooks

Dr. Ralph Feather has been writing middle and high school science textbooks longer than most of our students have been alive. He recently published one more -- a three-textbook series in Texas for middle school science, iScience for Texas, Grades 6, 7, & 8, copyright 2015, with McGraw-Hill Education.

Dr. Feather, professor of science education, education foundations, and educational research in the Department of Teaching and Learning, published his first textbook in 1988. Since then, he has authored more than 60 titles for Merrill Pub. Co., Glencoe Pub. Co., and McGraw-Hill Education.

He also published a six-textbook nationwide series for middle school, iScience Grades 6, 7, & 8, iScience Life Science, iScience Earth and Space Science, and iScience Physical Science, copyright 2012, with McGraw-Hill Education. In addition, Dr. Feather published a high school text, Physical Science with Earth Science, copyright 2012 and a three-textbook series, Florida iScience, Grades 6, 7, & 8, copyright 2012, all with McGraw-Hill Education.

Think of how many students Dr. Feather has helped to educate – not only on Bloomsburg’s campus but also in school systems across the country. This is just one example of the vast reach of our College of Education.
