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.

My parish is looking to adopt STEMscopes through Accelerated Learning. I have went through the website and noticed how user friendly it is and the amount of work that went into elaboration on the 5Es. Has anyone heard of this science material and if so, how is it working in your area?

Has anyone utilized this program this past school year? If so, what advice would you give on maximizing it's use? My school will be using it next year and I noticed that science only has one module to work from. We have will have access to the entire site for the next two years. I realize school just got out, but I want the get a jump on it before my SUMMER LAZY kicks in!

I really enjoyed reading about how to incorporated motorcycle design with a standard covering simple machines. This article gave me some great ideas of showing the students with each standard covered, see if there is a STEM job connection I can make.

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.
