NSTA Daily Do! | Posted in Distance Learning

These are great! I am finding myself both teaching remotely and homeschooling my children. I will use the Daily Do informally to supplement my son's learning since all that has been provided by his teacher are worksheets with no engagement with the real world around him. 

We have been taking daily walks with a different purpose each day. Today's purpose will be to spot living creatures on our walk and discuss how they choose their home (even though I'm late since this was last Thursday's Daily Do).

Teaching for Conceptual Understanding in Science | Posted in Professional Learning

We used the book for our PLC - Middle School Science in New York in the spring. Teachers found the ideas very useful and opened possibilities for some of them, trying and implementing new strategies and forms of formative assessment. The main focus was to explore the Conceptual Change Instructional Model. The plan this year is for teachers coming to the PLC for the first time to read and explore during the year in both in-person and online sessions, and those who were in the PLC last year will deepen in the discussion of their topics of interest.

Remote Learning and Citizen Science | Posted in Distance Learning

The SciStarter site https://scistarter.org/ has many interesting projects, both short- and long-term, that could be of interest to students and their families. I'm involved in several, including one where I analyze and catalog photographs from a wildlife refuge. No special skill or training is necessary, just time and a keen eye! -- Mary B
