I enjoyed your blog and your thoughts about technology then and now. My school district is still using some of the equipment that was pictured, even in the high school.

These ideas are great anytime of the year. Every day I have new students coming to my classes and these are excellent ways to get them caught up!

5 Understanding
This article has remained true over the last 7 to 8 years. Science is neglected and even forgotten when it comes to other subjects but there is a bright side science teachers are now using science as a vehicle to help students with language barriers to learn the language of English. I have taught students who spoke some or no English but when they get involved in an experiment you can engage their understanding of science concepts while teaching the basics of English. Understanding is the best way to reach all students and science provides the gateway that opens the door to a child's understanding no matter what their native language is.
