This is my 10th year teaching science and I feel that I have been doing a disservice all this time. I began working with students in the science department and just LOVED IT!! I've worked with high schoolers (started) and middle schoolers (currently), and the middle school has been the most fun. I like knowing that I’m sending a more knowledgeable group of students the high school way. Reflecting on my teaching experience, I realized that I spent more time on the delivery of the material and less on the structure and purpose. My goal is to find a balance between delivery, structure, and purpose. I want to be more effective and knowledgeable about the disciplines taught on the middle school level.

Thanks James. I've always started on the surface of the Earth when I taught Earth Science. Of course, that was order my district wanted it taught. Now that I'm in Physical Science after so manys in Earth Science, I just wanted to be sure which path would give the best insight. My district is in the middle of restructing the curriculum (I'm making lessons up as I go), so I'm a little shy on how I s...

This scipack help correct some of the concepts I believed to be true. As I was going through this, so many ideas of how to convey this information in a animated way to my 6th grades are flooding my brain. I had to grab a note pad to jot down the ideas as I was reviewing the information.
