You already have everything it takes to inspire wonder and make meaningful moments in your science classroom.
It’s time to get back more
for all that you give
and start jumping for joy about your job!
TRADE your TALK for TECH when trying to teach your science students complex concepts so they stick.
LECTURE LEADS TO LEARNING.
If you aren’t trusting your students to
set the pace, to try and maybe fail …
to own the process,
any learning that seems to happen won’t last.
You’ve heard of student-led approaches like problem-based and project-based strategies that feel so out of reach because they require tons of time, prep, and hands-on resources …
(plus, probably another college degree to figure out?!)
Then there’s the flipped classroom that does include more opportunities for practice and collaboration in the classroom but only because teachers assign lecture videos to watch as homework …
Tooooooooooooo many high school science teachers think students can’t or won’t learn without being told or shown all the important things!
Because they haven’t included
in their teacher toolbox.
Deliver science lessons that are FUN and focused on finding new knowledge using research-based strategies that have been tested and tweaked in a real classroom for real kids.
When you find yourself needing more fulfillment from this service work, I’ll help you craft new plans that will captivate your kiddos, help them communicate what they learn, and condition them to do more critical thinking.
IT’S TIME TO:
LOCK AWAY YOUR LECTURE NOTES
and, instead, lean on learning experiences that deepen discovery.
to transform complex, abstract concepts into accessible ones (and actually tailor your to-do list!).
ADOPT A MENTOR MINDSET
because support leads to student success (and, no one likes a know-it-all!).
Stop believing the lie that once-a-week or once-a-month hands-on lab activities and entertaining demonstrations are the only way to make science come alive in your classroom.
Increasing your students’ interest and engagement in science is totally achievable by letting them take the lead and setting high expectations within the context of a routine in which you consistently deliver technology-powered learning experiences that kids actually enjoy.
(Interesting how every venture can be successful with consistency, isn’t it?!)
Your students can ace their tests without memorizing terms, definitions, rules, and trends.
I’ll show you how — no fuss, no muss, no mess!
DIGITAL INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN
Stop stocking your supply closet with do-dads from the dollar store to keep your students busy and claim your lessons are “interactive”. I’ll help you build complete, inquiry-based lessons that lead to lasting learning using FREE technology you can find on the web.
SCIENTIFIC METHOD MASTERY
I’ll show you how to capitalize on the cross-cutting concepts of science to build lessons that start with simple observations but ramp up the rigor by incorporating evidence identification, data analysis, inferencing, and clear communication.
Since the essence of science is about searching for answers to questions, the last thing your students need is to believe there’s only one “right answer”. I’ll reveal a different role you can adopt — one that empowers every student to find their way to the finish line.
I help science teachers inspire wonder in our world and instill critical thinking skills in their students that last a lifetime.
For the past five years, I’ve used a novel lesson planning framework to establish a routine of reflection, exploration, and analysis in my online chemistry classroom.
My students became comfortable and confident with the challenges I created for them.
Now, I help other high school science teachers use their deep content knowledge to share their passion for science in a way that allows them to see the difference they make so they can feel more joy from their jobs.
If you teach chemistry at the middle or high school level, check out my done-for-you system! I teach that course, and I’ve prepped not only all the lessons you’ll need, but a sequence that complements a discovery and inquiry-based model, as well as all the related assessments and I’ve even integrated technology to deliver it all.
If you’re ready to transform your teaching technique, you don’t need more professional development provided by your school or led by a Ph.D. who hasn’t been in the classroom in years. You need guidance from a teacher in the trenches who can encourage you and consult with you to make it work. That’s me! Over here! Let’s partner up!
