About Me
Science in the Middle! I love to be in a classroom and 8th grade is my favorite age group. Learning beside students who demand relevancy, excitement and the unknown keeps me on my toes. What better place to be to keep learning.

Why Blog in Science Class

(cross-posted from my blog)

The lab bench, beakers, liquids, a balance, data in a notebook these are the makings of the class lab. Now add in the lab report. Follow the way of writing science, abstract,

introduction, methods, results, discussion…Now turn it in, and move

forward to the next assignment.

Now consider this: The lab bench, beakers, liquids, a balance, data in a notebook these…

Hi, Rick! I don't know why, but I love 8th graders, too. It may be because my experience as an 8th grader (so many years ago) was 'memorable.' They are my fave group, too. I teach Government to seniors in the summer and they're fine to work with, but give me my 8th graders most times!

Thank you so much Rick. This is a great resource. It's a perfect example of science in action on the new web. I will definitely share my wiki and presentation when it's ready.

Hey, I'm sure you've seen this but I thought I'd send it along anyway. Made me think of an extension on our digital portfolio discussion.

Hey there. Would you mind if I gave my dad your name to connect with on this site? He's new to this process and I thought looking around your page would give him a better idea of what he could do than my basically new one.

Thanks Rick for applying to join our on-line science fair wiki. Please feel free to add your own ideas and student work - it can be very motivating for students to see the work of others! I would appreciate your feedback on any features or tools that would be appropriate to add to this learning space.
Best Regards, Britt Gow

Hi, this is Kevin. Hope your summer is going well and you had some time to relax.

I've started a new Ning network for Middle School Science Teachers and I thought you might like to join as you are (may be) also a m.s. science teacher. I thought it would be really good to have just middle school science teachers share some of their labs, demos, concerns, what works and what doesn't about teaching this level. Hope to see you there.

Thanks, Kevin

Thanks a bunch! I can't wait to look at the blog you set up for your students!

Heya Rick,

sorry i didn't get back to you until now. I've been so busy with grading and mid terms and you name it. I always hate end of the quarter.

Anyway, I don't use blogging in my classrooms now because our district doesn't allow it. I am currently cunducting research on the advantages and disadvantages of blogging in the classroom to change the policy of using blogs and wikis within the classroom. I want them to allow it.

Though if when you get your blog set up and running, if i can take a look at it, and maybe ask you some questions for my research i would love that. I'm looking to get the perspective of newer teachers to using blogging as well as teachers that i have been doing it for a while.

Cheers mate.

Thanks Rick. This should be interesting. I love starting things where I really don't know where it will end up!

I saw a comment you left for Jay Fogleman about using web 2.0 tools in science teacher preparation. I started a community for my secondary science methods class. It would be great if I could recruit a few inservice science teachers to join! http://teachingscience.ning.com/

Class starts on Tuesday, so it is pretty sparse now.

These students will also be mentoring science fair teams in Dubai via Blackboard...should be fun!
