Sun Nov 17, 2019 1:00 PM in Lab Attendance Policy and Makeups
Hello Brendon, I can tell you a policy that my high school science teacher had and I think it worked pretty well. If a student was absent for an excused reason then she would allow the student to come in either before or after school to make up the lab within a weeks time. She also had another policy where one lab absense could be excused and you did not have to make it up if you had over an A...

Tue Nov 12, 2019 8:39 PM in Science at Home
Hell Ashleigh, I am a pre-service teacher so I have not had this experience yet but I do know that in most classrooms there is such a small fraction of time that allows for science instruction. I think it is a wonderful idea to try and get science done at home so the students are gaining as much knowledge as they can. I think the best thing to do would be for you to send the activities home wi...

Tue Nov 05, 2019 11:13 PM in Ecouraging parents to support science learning outside of the classroom
Sarah, I completely agree with what you are saying!

4 Okay Way to Teach about Animals
I thought that this article was good at teaching information about animals, not great. I did enjoy the table included that helped to identify different classification of animals. I really enjoyed how the article wrote about different perspectives from the teachers point of view to the students. I think it is a great tool in understanding the way the students are thinking and receiving information that educators are presenting to them. I think that this article would be better if it gave more of a way to use this information as in activity ideas or something along those lines.

5 Great Weather Article
This was a great article relating to the topic of weather. It gave a great activity of blogging about the weather which is a good way to incorporate information into the lesson as well as utilizing technology as well. I really enjoyed how it also gave information about other aspects of weather as in clouds to give the teacher and students more information that they can include in their blog. Having the students be forecasters is a great way to have them present their understandings in a fun way that does not seem super stressful.
