Science is about the HOW and the WHAT
Imagine a classroom where students have just completed a science investigation and a whole class discussion is under way. Students put forth competing ideas in their clearest and strongest forms, even though some ideas may turn out to be more correct then others. Students explain their ideas in detail with evidence. They listen carefully to each other with respect. Students take seriously and evaluate their own and others competing ideas. In other words, they are intellectually engaged.
I have been working in various capacities in education since 1988. I am a resident of Putnam where I have served on the Board of Education for the past twelve years. My wife Betsy is a psychologist who works at UConn and we have a high-energy 6-year-old black lab named Winnie. We enjoy outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking and exploring new places.
Dr. Carl Sagan is one of my “science hero’s”, one of Dr. Sagan’s quotes that we use as a frame of reference in our class is “Science is a way of thinking much more than it is about a body of knowledge.” Please contact me at anytime if you have questions regarding your child's experience in 7th grade science.
