Reflection: Student Ownership Is All This Burning Necessary? (Part 3/4) - Section 5: Visiting with Researchers


Using the questions generated at the beginning of this unit, students have a one on one discussion with an LTER researcher.  This is important for both students and researchers because as a teacher I am bridging a gap between these two groups. In this video, I explain how I can scaffold this interaction to make it a success.
