Science Education - New Directions, Continued

During the summer of 2008, Paul Grobstein, Wil Franklin, Luisana Taveras, a rising sophomore at Bryn Mawr College, and Julia Lewis, a rising senior majoring in Chemistry and Bryn Mawr College, will be thinking about science education and trying out ideas in a summer institute program with K-12 teachers. These forums are a place for ongoing thinking by the four of them, and any one else interested. To contribute your thoughts, use the forum entry form at the bottom of this and other forum pages.

Some New Directions, Continued

Our third conversation provided a general perspective on how can we get students (and teachers) more effectively engaged with science. This week a little more theory, and some samples of things moving in this direction? What seems to work, not work with the examples? What can we learn from both? About, among other things, intersections between teaching in the humanities and the sciences (see also comments on Open-ended Inquiry in Science Education (and Education in General) and on Inquiry and Historical Research in the Literature Classroom).

More theory
