Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Exploring Natural Gas - Section 4: Evaluate


This is the first year I have done the lab in conjunction with the articles. Many districts are asking science teachers to incorporate Common Core standards into their lessons. Last year I wrote the multimedia components of this lesson. I liked the lesson except that it did not include science practices.

I found the lettuce bag lesson on Planet Seed: Schlumberger Excellence in Education Development. I thought the lesson would be a better NGSS lesson with the integration of the lab with the science and technology reading.

The process of understanding the natural world is oftentimes subtle and difficult to measure. NGSS demands that we teach the science content and support it with Common Core. The pressure at a district level to include writing and reading can not supersede the teaching of science. As teachers we have to find a way to incorporate reading and writing in an authentic manner.
