My name is Nicole Marion Dullea and I am a graduate student at Oklahoma State University. I am seeking my Masters of Education in Teaching, Learning and Leadership with an emphasis in Initial Certification in Elementary Education. I am on track to graduate in Fall 2017 and hope to teach first or second grade once I graduate.

Scope on Safety: Responding to Laboratory Accidents
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 4:56 PM Responding to Laboratory Accidents
The article is detailed on what do to with injuries in most laboratory accidents. It mentions middle school science laboratories, but some of the first aid could be useful to elementary classrooms, too. The article is broken down by different types of injuries that could occur in a laboratory – from burns to projectile eye injuries – and explains what to do while you wait for the school nurse or emergency medical responders. I actually learned a great deal on addressing accidents from reading this article, but I could also see that it could be useful to have on hand in the classroom to reference during an incident.
Methods and Strategies: Formative Assessment Probes
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 2:55 AM Formative Assessment Probes
This article focuses on how to successfully use formative assessment probes and the benefits of using them in the classroom. Formative assessment probes are a useful tool to help determine student’s prior knowledge and understanding of a concept and also to assess if they are comprehending material during or after a lesson. The article focuses on a teacher that uses formative assessment probes during two separate lessons on rocks and matter. I found the article helpful in showing exactly when and how to use a formative assessment probe and how to connect two similar concepts.
Science Shorts: Observation Versus Inference
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 1:13 AM Observations and Inferences
Students make observations and inferences every day, but they don’t necessarily know that they are doing so and they may not know the difference between the two. This short article outlines the differences so that they are easily understood. The article is accompanied by a lesson for 3rd through 5th graders, with adaptations for kindergarten through 2nd grade. I appreciate how the article also includes how to incorporate this lesson in other subjects, such as pointing out inferences in your reading lesson or inferences that are made during other lessons. When teaching the meaning of observations and inferences, I will definitely reference this article and lesson.
