Peggy has a very good point. Currently I am substituting and I get a wide variety of comments on being strict. Most of them are directed toward dealing with Elementary students. But I find I am also hesitant to be overly firm or confrontory with any students that are larger. I try to be compassionate, and utilize my proximity to students to reduce conflict. I stay around 3 feet away from all stu...

Obi, Hi. I have a B.S. in Biology with a chemistry minor and a Masters in Adolescence Education. I too considered getting a Masters in Science, my goal would have been to obtain a Masters in Biology. I think it is a wonderful idea! What I did learn from my research is that it is important to know your state certification requirements prior to selecting any program. I found that my state, Ne...

3 Valuable resource for Nutrition guidelines
The information found in this scipack is invaluable. Also included are a variety of hands on activities, and animations which help to support the information. However, I found that in some of the animations the text boxes were too small so although information was provided it could not be accessed. Also during the assessments some questions where the participant is requested to 'check all that apply' had choices which were poorly worded or extremely general which caused confusion. When the final exam was complete, I could not access the correct answers to the questions deemed incorrect without having to research the topic. Please note that although the final results lists questions as being incorrect, partial credit is given for questions where multiple answers are required. Overall the Scipack has wonderful information and activities. It is worth the time. Just be sure to take good notes and read carefully during the assessment.

4 History of Astrological discoveries are excellent
Excellent overview of the various scientists which established the heliocentric model and of today's current technologies. I reduced my rating by one star due to the explanation of retrograde motion, which is introduced but requires another example to expand on the interactive already provided.
