Science teacher growth and development
Glen Ellyn, IL
Support science teachers in developing their pedagogy using student-centered teaching based on practices authentic to the scientific community.
I am currently working on the Assessment Literacy Project. We work with high school science teachers in a professional development setting to help them grow their skills in applying the Next Generation Science Standards, literacy in science, and assessment literacy within their classrooms.
Travel, scrapbooking, everyday science, food.
The Learning Sciences offers a unique place to research teaching and learning in a multi-disciplinary way.
The people at LSRI are welcoming and supportive but also push you to be the best you can be. Also, the program focuses on learning in the disciplines, which provides me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in physics as well as education.
