Inspire Independent Learners: Reflecting On Our Practice & Purpose
“We don’t learn from experience… we learn from reflecting on experience.”
We have all had experiences in our classrooms… [yah, you can laugh at that one]. But how often do you have the time and space to reflect on those experiences?
Cultivating Curiosity is a great teacher reboot to review and reflect on the fundamental shifts in NGSS-style instruction. It’s not an overload of content but rather, an opportunity to explore our thinking and consider a few strategies to better embody a three-dimensional, student-owned science approach!
Consider this eight-week workshop series an invitation to
- find purpose in your instructional approaches
- evaluate the impact of latent attitudes, hidden beliefs, and assumptions (so we can better see, value, and serve the students we have), and
- craft a classroom culture built from the foundations of three-dimensional teaching and learning [phenomena-based science, exploration and discovery, and student-led meaning-making].
