Bev DeVore-Wedding

I taught math and science at a small, rural school in NW Colorado (CO native too); my favorite courses to teach are Earth Systems, Chemistry, Physical Science, Trig and Geometry. I appreciate good humor, good science humor is even better; and my goal is to focus on science (& math) literacy for all of my students, their families and my community. I left the public school classroom in August 2014 to earn my PhD. in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), which I completed successfully December 2017. I am currently a post-doctorate in Chemistry at UNL. I have co-authored a two-semester general chemistry lab manual with Tribal community connections. Additionally, we are sharing how we indigenized our lab curriculum through various professional venues. I am slowly working my way back home to Colorado to continue teaching and sharing with professional communities, particularly in science and science education!.

Hello, I incorporated a state funded program, Riverwatch, her ein Colorado into my chemistry course. We sampled water from the local stream (6 blocks from the high school); I used water as a theme for most of my chemistry course anyway, but this is practical application of chemistry with water quality. Data is posted to the state database, site visites enured quality assuance in procedures.  ...

I really like having these resources in one place. The unit analysis is good, easily adapted to different grade levels and content areas.
