  1. 1. Denise Warren Christina Wood Carrie SchlaglerTeaching and Learning: Science January 25, 2012
  2. 2. Idea 1: Time Traveler/Earth Explorer Looking at New York State through time. Compare/contrast climate, cultures latitude/longitude, ecosystems, and any information that could go into a pamphlet to help other travelers understand the area better.
  3. 3. Idea 2: Everyday Mad Scientists Everyday activities involving science like cooking, baking, sports, gardening, video games etc. Incorporate chemistry, biology, physics, earth science & multiple units Connect science knowledge to prior experience to make learning more meaningful. Use real-life examples/experiments, videos, technology
  4. 4. Everyday Mad Scientists Cooking/Baking to teach  Gardening to teach Earth Chemistry, science, Geology, Microbiology, States of Environmental Science, Matter, Agriculture, Anatomy & Physiology Math/Measurements
  5. 5. Idea 3: Intergalactic Tour Guides Students make brochure to teach visitors Earth or beyond Incorporate weather, natural resources, flora/fauna, history of location, ecology, astronomy, biology . . . Questions: Can it support life? Why/why not? As we fly past Jupiter’s moon, you’ll notice the layer of ice . . .
  6. 6. Some of our other ideas Actors/role play/charades (Ex. Have students act out different types of bonding or cellular components) Star Trek/Star Wars theme – intergalactic heroes trying to solve intergalactic problems Investigative reporters/journalists searching for answers to puzzling questions Playing games like charades, 20 questions, etc to make learning the vocab/content details more fun
  7. 7. Teaching Science 21st Century Style:Why Does it Matter? Interdisciplinary Approach  Meaningful connections  Literacy across the curriculum Inquiry & exploration, not memorization/rote learning  Constructing knowledge  Critical thinking and problem solving Future success  Effective use of technology and related skills  Smart boards are not glorified white boards Appreciation & Historical perspective Depth over breadth of knowledge
  8. 8. Teaching Science 21st Century Style:How can we do that? Internet/computer technologies Videos/POV: clips & plan ideas (http://www.pbs.org/pov/educators/) Video games/virtual worlds Real-life examples/experiments Texts, journals, other reference material Guest speakers – local & diverse to show anyone can have career in science Models, demonstrations Proper planning, assessment and management And . . .
