Not surprising but...
I recently read an article about science engagement and the way students learn
I am passionate about Science and Social Studies education. Whether this instruction be at a pre-k to a high school level, students experience in the K-12 Science classroom matter. Per the infographic below by the Amgen Foundation Teachers are a top influence if students choose a biology career. Furthermore, students are asking for more engagement in their science classrooms.
I work to provide a student focused and engaged science classroom through the use of the Engineering Design Process, Questions-Claims-Evidence, and problems that lend nicely to project/problem based learning. To do any of these things you definitely need a strong classroom community and collaborative grouping can help students build their knowledge and science vocabulary with one another. What do you do?
