Reflection: Perseverance Knowledge is Power (2/3) - Section 2: Active Engagement


I try, in most of my units and lessons, to give the students a chance to research topics and concepts. This, I believe, is so important in the area of building perseverance for students. Not only do students need to experiment, log data, and make predictions, but they also need to learn to research other scientific information and use it to build on their conceptual knowledge, independently. 

Think about offering your students research opportunities within your units-you'll see a different outcome than usual!
