Teaching for Thinking in Senior High Science.
Fenwick, Tara
Today's curricula must incorporate activities that help students make science concepts and skills their own. Many suggest that teachers should allow students to relate classroom lessons to their own lives, explore a wide variety of applications and connections to other knowledge and experience, and consolidate the learning in ways they will remember. This document suggests that teachers can better achieve these goals by helping students to enhance their communication skills which includes reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. A variety of activity ideas that focus on using these communication processes are presented. The specific intent of this paper is to help teachers incorporate the use of three important assignments in the senior high science program. Discussed are: (1) the science learning log; (2) the portfolio; and (3) the project. (ZWH)
