Learners first blog presentation

  1. 1. WHAT DIFFERENCES ARE THERE WITH RESPECT TO TEACHING SCIENCE IN THE UNITED STATES VERSUS OTHER COUNTRIES? LEARNERS FIRST BLOG PROJECT Bernadette Scheller
  2. 2. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 (1)Roth, K., and Garnier, H. December 2006/January 2007. What Science Teaching Looks Like: An International Perspective. Science in the Spotlight, Pages 16-23, Volume 64, Number 4. This article summarizes a study of teaching practices for 8th grade science students in the following 5 countries: Czech Republic; Japan; Australia; Netherlands; and United States. The 4 countries were chosen to compare to the United States because they outperformed the United States I science achievement on the 1999 Trends in Mathematics and Science (TIMSS) assessment.
  3. 3. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 (1)Roth, K., and Garnier, H. December 2006/January 2007. What Science Teaching Looks Like: An International Perspective. Science in the Spotlight, Pages 16-23, Volume 64, Number 4. The Czech Republic…. Challenges students in theoretical science topics Engages students via classroom discussions. Calls on and grades students in the class to answer topic and off topic questions
  4. 4. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 (1)Roth, K., and Garnier, H. December 2006/January 2007. What Science Teaching Looks Like: An International Perspective. Science in the Spotlight, Pages 16-23, Volume 64, Number 4. Japan…. Teaches its students via inquiry-based methods Uses evidence to develop concepts Focuses on conceptual content rather than theoretical
  5. 5. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 (1)Roth, K., and Garnier, H. December 2006/January 2007. What Science Teaching Looks Like: An International Perspective. Science in the Spotlight, Pages 16-23, Volume 64, Number 4. Australia… Often ends lessons with “tentative conclusions” with a question for students to further ponder. Includes “real life” applications to their science lessons Teaches via activities such as games, puzzles, comedy and exciting demonstrations to keep students focused
  6. 6. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 (1)Roth, K., and Garnier, H. December 2006/January 2007. What Science Teaching Looks Like: An International Perspective. Science in the Spotlight, Pages 16-23, Volume 64, Number 4. Netherlands… Teach via independent learning Uses class discussions and short demonstrations/lectures to supplement the “self-learn” strategy
  7. 7. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 (1)Roth, K., and Garnier, H. December 2006/January 2007. What Science Teaching Looks Like: An International Perspective. Science in the Spotlight, Pages 16-23, Volume 64, Number 4. United States… Poorly connects content with real life issues (does not make the lessons pertinent to the students) Uses hands on activities, independent learning, and classroom discussions as teaching methods
  8. 8. WHAT SCIENCE TEACHING LOOKS LIKE: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE 1 Reflections…. The lessons MUST be pertinent to the student, not only to engage the students, but the provide a foundation for continual learning. To be successful in achieving scientific academic excellence, scientific inquiry and activities must be linked to the content or purpose of the lesson and to real-life scenarios.
