3 “Training for Trainer: Teaching Science in English Language”Saturday 9, March at Peony RoomActivity 1 : Demonstrate Science Inquiry 11. After Teacher David greet and told his profile, we got Outline for today acitivity.We were doing activity with partner.This Outline : Workshop #1 Workshop Objectives 1-1 Introduction of workshop leader and overall plan for the eight workshops 1-2 Compare and Contrast the benefits and rational for using Two inquiry activities to introduce students to a science class. 1-3 Introduction of participants and individual goal setting for these workshops. Workshop Agenda 1. Introduction of instructor including background, teaching experience, and expectation for this workshop series. 2. Activity: Front wheel drive vs. Rear wheel drive-which is most efficient? 3. Discussion of the results of the activity. 4. Activity: Penny Lab-Can you explain the data? 5. Discussion of the results of the activity. 6. Comparing these two activities with an emphasis on what pitfalls an ELL might have, the teachers’ role, and how to teach these activities. 7. Lunch with time for informal discussion about the morning’s activities. 8. Introductions: Individual participants show their video of their classroom and describe what their goals are for their students and for themselves, and what they need to achieve these goal. 9. Participants learn how to access, setup and use the workshop Edmodo website. 10. Participants start their personal journal.
4 1. Material2. Problem3. Every group (2 people) design experiment and record data on newsprint paper.Explain answer from you data.4. Every group learns from others group for sharing knowledge.3. Everyone answer 4 questions.Item 2 : Everyone share on newsprint paper in front of class.
5 My Answer. My Answer. 1. I’m very enjoy when I do activity. I want 2. Speed/Factor of distance to find method, data for the problem, not fear about right or wrong answer. I plan to experiment with friend and think about how to explain by data. My Answer. My Answer. 3. I’ll show a map of town for them, 4. This activity based on curiosity, begin choose start point and end point. Let with question, set of situation and them think “how to go place by Model equipment. Thinking plan to experiment, car” condition: distance about 1.5 m., car find data to support your answer. This must to stop when arrived end point. activity let me think about inquiry.
6 Activity 2 : Demonstrate Science Inquiry 21. Material 1. Different years of Penny 2. Digital scale2. Problem Example : recording data2. Present data by hand writing graph : drawing graph upon your design. You mustlearn how to organize data.
7 Example of drawing graph 3 years of record and different 0.5 weight3. Answer 4 Questions. My Answer. My Answer. 1. This activity based on collect data, 2. relation/explanation/prediction/Trend to analyze data, try to explain and find relationship between data. It’s motivating us to think about way to present data. My Answer. My Answer. 3. 4. It’s very important when we must to Give situation “Year and weight present data and explain data. In science have relation of penny” always present data in graph, concept Give different penny and digital mapping, diagram. scale

23 Reflective Journal of Teaching Science to English Language Kru PUM I’m (KruPum) a Biology teacher at Thanonhakpittayakom, Thanonhak Sub-district, Nangrong District, Burriram Province. I was really nervous about my English. Idecided writing mail to David, He’s very kindness teacher who cheer up me toconfident to learn. In 1st workshop, ฺI study how to engage student in inquiry way.The activities change role of teacher who not talk and chalk but teacher must todesign how to learn by inquiry. David teaches me to know principle of TeachingScience in English Language; I must to give their student opportunity to use English.I imagine about my classroom, begin with powerful activity, learn vocabulary, letstudent use English. How to help student to do that? They should study partner orgroup. A Study partner can share and help each other in hard time; sometimes onecan’t communicate in English or ones can’t understand science, partner can helpyou. I very impressed with workshop reasons by: 1. I have opportunity to use English with teacher David and all participants 2. I love to learn how to design Science activities; Teacher can demonstrategood activities in inquiry, Science clip and any media. 3. I believe Teacher David can develop my skill. 4. I learn how to improve my English: Just speak, write and listen more andmore. Picture
