Science Tuesday: Slice of Life Tuesdays

We are back to Slice of Life Tuesdays on April 1st as we put a period to our month of daily slices.  Perfect timing, I say!

And I have a Slice to share!

After a few team sessions with the HF High School Science Department today I spent the day watching just how teachers could make Argument writing/reading strategies I shared with them, their own.  I began the day early, up at 6 and racing for the shower, the small breakfast, the coffee that Tuvia insisted he get up to prepare.  I wore light purple in honor of April  and I was out in the cold, still needing heat in the car.

I was on my way with a bit of Thruway traffic before I moved off to the Palisades north,  that would once again, be all mine 🙂

Even though I always feel the pressure that I will arrive late, I never do and again, I was comfortably early for my first class.

On time and waiting to see writing and reading… waiting… patiently…

A young teacher, in his first year of teaching loves Science. In this  Physics class he offers readings in Electricity- Edison vs. Tesla- the car?  The class is working in small groups looking for an interesting question to share with the whole group…. I’m engaged and they are engaged.  I’m hopeful.

Finally my buddy Nicolette… she has bought into project based learning and thrown off the Regents shackles… to open her students to exploring the issues… She is moving out of the center to a place of facilitating and I love being in her space, capturing more and more of her adventures and she’s taking some of her colleagues with her.

She will conquer the universe!!!!

I  watched four teachers in different stages of their careers, in different places of experimentation.

As usual, I leave with lots to think about and share.

  1. It’s always interesting to watch different teachers work. Each one brings his / her own style to the mix. We can all learn so much from each other.
