Reflection: Student Feedback Discovering Solar Energy - Section 3: Evaluate


As I was reading through the summaries I noticed that many students understood how solar panels in the current form cannot be the future solution to our transportation needs. I asked the students, "To answer the question more fully, would you like to learn about how the technology of solar panels is changing?" The consensus was that they wanted to learn more. Sweet! I began planning for a new lesson on Solar Panel technology.
