science education themes

Glad to have a number on the table.  The ones that most intrigued me, as a note to myself and anyone else interested ...

  • Replace "quantitative reasoning" with "reasoning" and perhaps that, in turn, with "inquiring"
  • Think of science/math not in isolation but in relation to other aspects of curricula
  • Assess as appropriate to enhancing inquiry skills rather than in relation to "mastery"
  • Point of science education (education in general) is not to achieve known skills but rather to acquire enhanced skill at the process of (open-ended, transactional) inquiry
