NISMEC I

  1. 1. N orthern I ndiana S cience M ath and E ngineering C ollaborative <ul><li>At our table: </li></ul><ul><li>Gordon Berry, Ph.D. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Professor of Physics, Notre Dame </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sara Nielsen, Saint Mary’s College </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Senior Chemistry Major, Secondary Education, at Washington HS. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Joseph Bellina, Ph.D. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Professor of Physics, Saint Mary’s </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Stuff to look at from our library at SMC. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Changing How Science Is Taught <ul><li>Learning Science Like Scientists. </li></ul><ul><li>Engagement rather than delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>Adopt a guided inquiry curriculum. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Please Don’t Expect To Understand All <ul><li>Lecture is a poor technique </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If not familiar with language and concepts. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Just stimulate your curiosity </li></ul>
  4. 4. Learning about the World <ul><li>We all construct conceptual mental models of the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Fragmented lives / fragmented models. </li></ul><ul><li>Fragmented models often not scientifically accepted ones. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>We all have these misconceptions. </li></ul><ul><li>Strongly Held ..our framework for thinking. </li></ul><ul><li>Inhibits learning from lecture or reading, need active engagement </li></ul><ul><li>Learn in the way scientists learn..guided inquiry </li></ul>
  6. 6. Different Visions of Science <ul><li>Private Science </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Being wrong is an opportunity to learn </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guided Inquiry, but no “scientific method” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learned in conversation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teachers rarely see this, grad students know. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Public Science </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Looks like the “scientific method” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Traditional School Science </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Deliver list of conclusions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Memorization and rule-driven deductive thinking </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. New Science Learning: Private Science in the Classroom <ul><li>Teachers guide student inquiry. </li></ul><ul><li>Curriculum situates content and process…student centered. </li></ul><ul><li>Student/scientists predict, observe, write in notebooks, and reflect in groups. </li></ul>
  8. 8. School City of Mishawaka, K-6 NISMEC’S Role: <ul><li>Guided Choice of Curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>District adopted NSF-funded curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher Science Institutes. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Private Science and Guided Inquiry. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In-School Support for Teachers. </li></ul><ul><li>Science Notebooks and Literacy. </li></ul><ul><li>Positive change has occurred. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Future <ul><li>Expand effort to other districts. </li></ul><ul><li>Whole school, whole district approach. </li></ul><ul><li>Work to change the curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>Support informal education. </li></ul><ul><li>Want to know/see more? </li></ul><ul><li>Come to our table and chat </li></ul>
