Wed Nov 26, 2014 11:02 AM in Advice for new teachers
That Is very good advice for a first year teacher. As I've been completing my lesson with my field experience classes, I realized that a lot of my lessons do not go as planned. MY teachers always tell me to have a plan B and C when conducting my lessons. Also knowing that all children are not the same, is helpful when creating lessons and activities for your class.

Wed Nov 26, 2014 10:43 AM in Halloween candy and STEM
Although Halloween is long gone, the website list several great activities that would put that old Halloween candy to good use. STEM may be a difficult area for students to understand, but these activities will really get them interested. They are fun and exciting lesson/ investigations, that students will really enjoy. As stated before, some of the lessons may be limited because of food allergies...

5 Great Collection
I was attracted to this collection because I have always had a love for astronomy. However, in elementary and secondary school, I do not remember learning a lot about it. Most of the things I learned about the study of astronomy was by reading and seeing television programs, or after I have already graduated school. I feel that science teachers skip over a lot of great material so that they can cover the things that they are forced to teach for testing purposes. I like this collection because it has a lot of useful material that can help teachers introduce astronomy topics to different age groups. I like that the collection has a combination of journal articles, book chapters and a podcast. It has helpful articles about stargazing and also a helpful chapter for teachers to create and encourage an inquired focused classroom. The collection also has an article that helps teachers to create a lesson to introduce students with sensory impairments to astronomy. I feel that that is very important that teachers incorporate modifications and accommodations when teaching students with special needs. I felt that that was a great addiction to her collection. Overall I like her collections, and the articles that she chose.
