Q1:  How do you define inquiry? or What does inquiry look like to you?

Standards and Inquiry or Standards vs Inquiry?

Fri, 12/13/2013 - 12:59 -- Sarah Kong

In my grad program one of our discussions concerned how to teach science the way science is actually done.  This seems to be one of the core ideas in the Next Generation Science Standards.  The standards want to encourage students to think more like scientists and engineers as opposed to students seeking an A.  Please share your thoughts!

Summer Inquiry Fun!

Wed, 06/12/2013 - 10:17 -- Sarah Kong

Summer is one of my favorite times as a teacher!  Like most teachers I like to take a little time away from school, but, once I've rested a bit, its my favorite time to do research as well.  I encourage you to take time this summer to explore labs and activities that you think may work for your classroom, but just didn't have time to examine with your busy teaching schedule.
