Dear Science Teacher,

If you spend more than half of each class period lecturing, your students are bored to tears and you’re burned out long before the buses arrive.

Does this science-teacher-status-quo sound familiar?

You do SO MUCH PREP writing out notes and creating practice worksheets for homework.

But, then you’re stuck grading a few nights each week.

You do SO MUCH PREP for hands-on activities and experimentation.

But, students struggle to connect them to concepts and you end up with chaos.

You focus most of your time and energy on building and delivering the CONTENT.

But, there’s never enough time to build real connection with your kids.

You focus on students’ being CORRECT as a measure of your success.

But, their fear of being wrong kills student confidence and keeps your classroom quiet.

Ever wonder how we got stuck in this rut?!

We’ve been conditioned — as children and as educated professionals — to a system that measures success according to standardized test scores.

We’ve been trying to create SCHOLARS instead of SCIENTISTS.

These outcomes (and how we achieve them) are not one and the same.

When all we want is for students to BE CORRECT, we’re not instilling SCIENCE SKILLS.

SCIENCE is about using what we already know.

SCIENCE is about being wrong.

SCIENCE is about trying again.

SCIENCE is about learning from every trial.

SCIENCE is about learning from the trials of others.

Planning with CORRECTNESS as a goal doesn’t allow us to:

adjust the content rigor with varying degrees of critical thinking and problem-solving

collect artifacts of student learning everyday to keep a daily pulse on every student’s progress

encourage our students to take ownership of learning and reinforce accountability

teach science as a process and a practice rather than as a collection of facts

show students they have what it takes to learn anything that interests them

If we can boost our kids’ confidence, the correctness will come.

We need activities that require SIMPLE science skills and allow students to make DIRECT CONNECTIONS to the content so we can SUPPORT them as they make new knowledge.

I’m here to show you how to use free technology tools

to create inquiry-based activities that you can use

to lead learning in your science classroom everyday.

Increase student confidence by clearly outlining activity tasks.

Increase student engagement by ensuring those tasks include opportunities for documenting simple observations.

Increase student achievement by connecting those inquiry-based tasks to the core ideas of your content.

Use your content area expertise to design activities and lead students through analysis instead of telling them everything you know.

Make meaningful connections with your students and within the content by offering your support as students sort through a comfortable struggle.

Get back some balance by using an approach that allows you to monitor student progress in real time and at-a-glance instead of spending so much of your personal time grading.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL GET !

A Mindset Makeover

Consider WHAT we’re really trying to achieve, HOW it differs from what is typical in science classrooms, and WHY a more active, learner-centered strategy is beneficial.

My Split-Up-The-Standards Technique

Identify the core ideas you want students to uncover and the science skills you’ll leverage to make that possible.

A Toolbox for Tackling Task Instructions

Identify the resources students will use and outline the actions they’ll take to collect and record critical observations.

The Everyday Artifact Assembly Guide

Organize outcomes to ease the angst students have with analysis, help them think more deeply by identifying relationships among their observations, and collect at-a-glance evidence of their learning everyday.

Get Your Questions Answered

Though the content in this course is self-study, scientists don’t accomplish much solo and I don’t want you to either! 

All teachers enrolled in this program will have access to a community portal where I’ll answer questions (Monday-Friday) related to creating inquiry-based activities using technology tools.

In this space, all teachers are encouraged to support one another and share their experiences.

Brainstorm The Basics

Use the Activity Alignment Journal (a Google spreadsheet) to build a year-long curriculum for your science courses!

With this resource, you can log a summary of each of your planned activities and align them with your content standards, the corresponding core ideas, scientific practices and tech tools you choose to use.

Explore More Examples

Sometimes we need more than instructions to achieve clarity … we need INSPIRATION!

In this bonus video, I share a few more examples of activities I’ve created, and I discuss the details of how they were assembled using the strategies and resources I’ve provided within the Active Learning Action Plan.

Track Student Engagement

The Active Learning Action Plan will allow you to create opportunities for students to be ante-up their engagement in your science classroom . . .

The Digital Planner & Student Activity Tracker is a year-long planner that links your daily lesson plans to student engagement.  This tool will allow you to easily track the quantity and quality of that engagement so that you can make informed, data-based decisions for future instruction.

To answer that question, consider what my students have had to say during class . . .

 . . . and what my instructional coach and principals have noted about how effective it is . . .

 . . . and what my instructional coach and principals have noted about how effective it is . . .

 . . . or what other teachers who’ve used my lessons shared about their experiences . . .

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 created inquiry-based activities using free technology apps 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.

There are 3 ways to really make a difference in your science classroom while actually lightening your workload:

01

provide opportunities for student learning to shine so that what they know and can do takes center stage.

02

tune toward technology and away from textbooks to transform content and meet students where they are.

03

collect daily artifacts that allow you to track student mastery at-a-glance and avoid hours of grueling grading.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program about learning to teach using NGSS?

The Next Generation Science Standards outline a 3-dimensional approach to teaching and learning according to which students should use science skills to learn science concepts through the lens of phenomena they can witness in our macroscopic world.

I use the Active Learning Action Plan to create activities for my own students in my own classroom, and I not yet required to comply with NGSS.  I created this approach with student engagement and achievement in mind, not the beaurocracy of a complex, ill-managed education system.

If you are required to meet these expectations, the training and tools provided in this Plan will support your planning and prep for direct instruction. 

What grade level does this approach work best for?

I teach high school chemistry and plan to, in time, create a curriculum for biology and physics, as well.

Activities can be easily differentiated for special needs or honors-level students, though that instruction is not included in this program.

State standards and teacher expectations are moving toward more student activity and overall ownership of learning at every grade level.

The sooner students learn and begin practicing science skills, the more proficient they will be by the time they graduate!

However, the technology resources I’m most familiar with online are intended for students in middle and high school.  Elementary teachers may need to spend some additional time searching for student-controlled resources like simulations.

I'm a new science teacher. Is this for beginners?

The sooner science teachers can adopt student-centered, inquiry-based strategies that require more focused, thoughtful action the better!

By starting with this approach early in your career, you’re less likely to feel bored and burnout … instead, you might wake up feeling excited to go to work and content in the knowledge that you’re commitment is creating true life-long learners.

I'm a veteran teacher. Could this really help me?

This program includes the exact process I used as I prepared to transition my online science classroom to a student-centered culture with active learning practices … and that was after 9 years of working with the traditional, lecture-lab mindset! 

If you know what you want to accomplish but you don’t how or you haven’t been successful yet, this program will be very helpful to begin the process of change.

I’m teaching multiple preps this year. Does it take long to create these activities?

The beating heart of every lesson I deliver is an inquiry-based activity designed using this Action Plan.  It takes me about 1 hour to create the activity and an additional 1 hour to build out the other parts of the lesson (those which are not included in the Action Plan).

Like any new endeavor, you should realize it may take time to become fluent.  You and I probably work differently, lead within different content areas, have different degrees of content area expertise, and aim to achieve different depths of knowledge with our student groups.

While the time it takes to create activities will vary from teacher to teacher, I would guarantee that the time to design them will take longer than if you were to create a brand new lecture presentation.

HOWEVER, science never goes out of style!  State standards and teacher expectations are moving toward more student activity and overall ownership of learning.  You’ll be able to use your new lessons for a very long time!

AND … doing it with guidance will always be more efficient than going solo.

How much support is included?

When you drop your question in the private community feed, you can expect a written answer from me within 24 hours, Monday-Friday.  Other teachers may also reply with their ideas and answers to your questions.

More focused feedback and dedicated support including personalized reviews are included for members of the Digital Instructional Design Studio.

What if I'm not happy with my purchase?

If the Active Learning Action Plan I’ve provided doesn’t allow you to create activities that encourage students to question and discover the core ideas of your content and be more independent in their doing OR you aren’t finding more fulfillment from this different style of teaching, just email me and I’ll happily issue you a full refund.
