Reviews from educators:
“I really liked the combination of videos of the instructors, lesson modules, the readings, the Teaching Channel videos, and the Teacher’s Guide. All very interactive and engaging.” (Liz, informal science educator)
“I think the course is a ‘must take’ for anyone who teaches science. This course is about getting your students to participate in science and should be at the heart of every science teacher’s program.” (Phil, high school teacher)
“I loved how you walked everyone through the process of inquiry and provided clear examples throughout.” (Robin, 8th grade teacher)
“As a classroom teacher, this is exactly what I need. Everyone is required to have students conduct meaningful research and publish it for a wider audience. Teachers commonly respond to this requirement with , ‘How am I going to do authentic research with 7 year old children? What can they possibly do during our scripted school day to meet this requirement?’ I cannot highly recommend this course enough! It is intuitive, authentic, has tremendous materials and is well planned and immediately applicable.” (Rebecca, 2nd grade teacher)
