5 Safety and Liability
This article is helpful because it reminds me that In any classroom setting, my students' safety is my number one priority. Sometimes teachers can overlook possible health and safety risks, and we cannot afford to do that. We owe our students and their families the safest possible environment, proper equipment, and proper instruction on safely performing difficult experiments.

5 To Hypothesize or Not
This article is helpful to future teachers because it outlines what a hypothesis is and how it can be used in the science classroom. This is helpful because I believe there are a lot of misconceptions about what a hypothesis is, and how to incorporate making them in our classrooms.

In today's classroom, we know our students' engagement is our priority, because without engagement, there is usually not much learning going on. This article is helpful because it explains why inquiry can help engage our students and make our class times together more beneficial.
