Tue, Nov 05, 2019 9:42 PM in Ecouraging parents to support science learning outside of the classroom
I find that many students struggle with science because it is difficult and also they have no one to turn at home when they struggle with science. As a teacher, I can only help them so much, but if they are studying at home or completeing homework, most parents aren't fluent enough in science to help. What are some ways that I can encourge parents to participate in science activities with the...

How does a new teacher make science fun for students who hate science? I have come across a few students who have expressed to me when I ask them why they aren't participating or turning in work that is below of what they actually know, they tell me it's because they hate science. I like to do labs in the class, but you can only do so many labs before the students become exhausted in your...

Tue, Sep 10, 2019 10:12 PM Making and the 5E Learning Cycle Review
Before this article, I always thought of using the 5E Learning Cycle with certain assignments/ activities. But after reading this article, it made me rethink that concept and brought up the possiblilty for me as a future teacher, to use the 5E's as a teaching style. At first I wasn't understanding how I could really do that, but after reading tha artcle and reading some of the examples that they gave, it really make sense in a science classroom to practice this. I also enjoyed reading about the concpet of making. And how we as teachers want our students to build upon what they learn and translate that into something that they can understand.
