What I mean by NOS is??? It’s important for me, as a teacher to learn because??
-Learning objectives for teaching NOS: thinking outside the box to solve problems, science is tentative, how scientists debate and support their conclusions, problem solving with a given set of tools, fluidity of science, investigate questions and describing investigation rationale, how scientists approach problems…
-What does research say about teaching NOS? Involve the students in construction of scientific knowledge, history of science and paradigm shifts, use of explicit language, glue goblins, etc…
-If your objective is being creative, then assess the evolution of idea through an inquiry cube demo. If your objective is to be inclusive and diverse, list the damaging stereotypes when the students are asked to picture a scientist. If your objective is to show the tentativeness of science then explain how diverse group’s perspectives strengthen an outcome in the 7 blind mice activity.
– Start with the end and work backwards to develop the most valuable lessons.
AND FOR NEXT WEEK… I choose Kathryn because she has the coolest purple notebook
