Christopher Horne is a teacher specialist for elementary science for Frederick County, Maryland, public schools and an adjunct professor in the education department at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. He is pursuing a doctoral degree in elementary science education at the University of Maryland, College Park. As a science specialist, Chris frequently demonstrates inquiry-based instruction in elementary classrooms. Chris describes a process in which he uses students’ written responses during one session as the “text” for reading and discussion during subsequent sessions while he engages fourth-grade students in learning about space science. Then he steps back and reflects upon his experiences in learning to document student thinking.
