Hello fellow practitioners,
I have been thinking about how you are instructing science in the field. I know that time is short with our learners and we want to make sure we prepare them for their high school equivalency exams, future jobs, and further education. There is at least one science course required for each of the degrees we offer at our local community college, as my adult learners transition into these courses I have been struggling with how to best prepare them. I did find this resource: https://lincs.ed.gov/professional-development/resource-collections/profile-742 and it focuses on Life Sciences. My question is do you only focus on one science topic, do you sample from all science topics, do you integrate other subjects such as reading, math, and writing...? What suggestions do you have for a novice teacher who is just starting to teach science or for experienced teachers who are looking at doing more with science? Do you run experiments? I need advice and I am sure others do too. I hope to hear a lot of different ideas (no idea is a bad idea).
