Everyday Science: Model Lessons I

Since January 12, 2018 I have been running the US Embassy’s Book Bus teacher empowerment program Everyday Science: Learn, To Teach; Teach, To Learn.

I promised the participants that I would share, online, most of what I shared with them in the workshops, that I would share them in the form of blog posts. This is the fourth one. (Click here for the blog post Everyday Science: Learn, To Teach; Teach, To Learn in which you can find links to all the blog post about the workshops.)

  • Click here for a PDF version of the PowerPoint presentation on the activity on observing a burning candle and the investigation involving it and a glass.

(I used the same activity in the one-off workshop I conducted for the Teach for Nepal science fellows in July 2016.)

The second model lesson was one on discovery learning, in which, I performed some light magic just as I did at the Dec. 1, 2017 session introducing the program to teacher and administrators gathered at the art council. Click on the play button below to listen to it.

 

 

Three of the demonstrations I performed as part of the magic show, I have used in my class in the past. You can find the details about them here, here and here.

Once again, I had them provide anonymous reflections. One of the first questions in the sheet asks them to rate the session and provide a reason(s) for the rating.

Here’s how the participants rated the session and their reasons.

What do you think?
