Reflection: Routines and Procedures What is Citizen Science? Shallow Dive (1 of 2) - Section 3: EXPLORE: Shallow dive


Some students will inevitably not follow the guidelines of the "shallow dive."  Assuming positive intention is a key teacher move.  Students may not have experience with self-directed learning; students may not be interested in citizen science coursework; students may resist the absence of graphic organizer scaffolds.  The shallow dive is an opportunity for teachers to interview students, to express a genuine love of content, to better understand individual student needs, and to have informal conversations.
