Techniques for Improving Vocabulary and Terminology Skills in Scien...
Vocabulary or terminology building is a difficult task for many students. A variety of teaching techniques and strategies are needed to help them develop a true understanding related to concepts.
Typical science and math textbooks introduce ten to 30 new vocabulary or terminology words every chapter. Considering curriculum requirements, students are faced with making sense and learning these new terms. Along with the need to make connections to concepts in a relatively short period of time.
Benefits of Student Digital Footprints in Science and Math
In contrast to the technology teachers use in a classroom for their professional use, what is the technology (or digital) footprint of your students?
Warning: Flipping Your Classroom May Lead to Increased Student Unde...
Flipping a classroom is not a teaching technique, it is more in line with a philosophy or way of teaching. It involves using technology as a tool, not the main focus, for helping students to increase their understanding of science or math concepts.
Motivating Underachieving Students in Math and Science
Your students’ future and education needs are not like yours and mine. For the most part, we are a product of an education system heavily influenced by the industrial age - lectures and rote memorization. This style of teaching was primarily designed to produce factory and skilled trade workers.
Due to the dynamics of today’s world economy, most students no longer have the same types of jobs waiting for them when they graduate. Their future is in the service, health, and technology career fields. However, there is still a demand for skilled trade workers (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010).
Today’s education system is still following the demands of the industrial age. So how does this clash with students’ needs for the future?
Encouraging students to use critical thinking is more than an extension activity in science and math lessons, it is the basis of true learning.
A good link for science and math...looking back in the past ishttp://http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/6-places-read-newspapers-archiv...
This will give you 6 sites where you can search old newspaper online. Using key words such as "Darwin" or Wright Brothers" can produce interesting primary source articles. I've only played with two of the suggested sites, but they were rewarding in terms of information as well as easy to use.
