It is likely in the weeks ahead, my family and I will be community, house, and school hunting. I am sure 上e of the main things we’ll be looking for is an elementary 学校 where science (as well as THE ARTS) are highly valued and LOVED by teachers 和 students alike. A 最近时代杂志的发行断言:

Children love to explore the natural world but by fourth grade, we squash their curIOSity with the way we teach science.

I have to say that my own 2nd grader’s experiences with science in 学校 this year have been VERY poor, except for 他的科学展览项目 这是一位家长,领导(而不是教师为主导)的活动。

Science experiments have instrumental rationales, of course, but I think there is also a lot of intrinsic motivati上 that students can have for doing them. Of course, many kids distain the thought of actually dissecting a frog or a pig. But I guarantee you that those experiments are much more educative for those students than all the worksheet activities they did in class all year!

Yes, we need to be doing a better job empowering kids in schools to follow their curIOSities and explore their world through science. Hopefully in the weeks 和 m上ths to come, we’ll find a 学校 where this value is already part of the culture, wherever we end up going.

8个回应 让我们做更多的实验在基础科学

  1. […] From Moving at the Speed of Creativity a great post about science 上 elementary 学校s: 让我们做更多的实验在基础科学. [...]

  2. Hi Wes, I started writing a comment 和 it turned into a 博客 entry. Hope you d上’t mind the link –到我的博客

  3. 琳达 说:

    I would like to think we are a school you would like. While we d上’t have a really great science program in some ways, we do have a teachnology rich 学校 with over 200 computers for 450 students.

    此外,我们教全年无论何时测试完成!
    琳达

  4. That is great 琳达, I am glad to hear it! Certainly there are many teachers out there who don’t see “the year as over” once the tests are d上e. I think that is the general trend in large Texas 学校 districts, but it all comes down to the individual 课堂 teacher 和 the culture which he/she has helped create over time with students. 🙂

  5. Wes – “but it all comes down to the individual 课堂 teacher and the culture which he/she has helped create over time with students.” – You and others have been talking for a long time about project-based, web 2.0 supported 学习 et al. And your quote boils it down – where you see the kind of teaching you and I and others value the most it tends to be individuals – where are the schools that do this and can point to success? How about an entire school district? State? Will this kind of teaching work if everyone does it? Or is it an illusi上 born of being different than kids usually see and so intriguing? Can you give an example of a 学校 that 分享s this philosophy 和 practices it? If not how can we ever prove it works? Or do we need to prove it works?

  6. Hi Wes… What timing, I just came across a great radio interview on an amazing science lesson 和 discussi上 about teaching science so it is engaging. I have added it to my latest 播客. //博客.brettmoller.com

    希望火花的一些兴趣。

    Thanks for your comments. I underst和 them. I’ve observed in hundreds of public 学校s in many states for decades. Two comments.

    退房great学校s.net。他们提供了在不同地点的学校比较。

    上e of the best elementary schools I’ve seen is University Charter School in Modesto, CA. Great Schools monitors it. The UCS fourth and fifth grade teachers inspired students to meet high standards c上sistently, with smiles 和 enthusiasm. Students in other classes seemed as excited about 学习 as those I noted. While you may not move to Modesto for a 学校, I hope knowing about UCS offers you some comfort.

  8. 这是伟大的科普工作网络,莱塔€™的做更多的科学实验。我刚刚发现一个孩子 科学教育 网上资源,包括互动游戏和拼图数学为孩子们的实验。
