Harnessing Divine Nonchalance: Teaching Everyday Science in a Pandemic
Madden, Lauren
Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, v24 n2 p158-167 2020
In this personal narrative reflection, the author examines her experiences teaching everyday science during the COVID-19 pandemic. She provides examples of curiosity-driven explorations with her own twin sons related to growing plants and baking bread. Through social media she shares her home experiences with others, building a remote community of practice around everyday science learning. She concludes with recommendations for teachers and parents interested in following a similar path.
