Oh yeah, almost forgot to post it here. My latest blog post for BTR was posted about a week ago: It’s Snowing on Venus: Students as Sense-Makers.
Here’s a teaser:
As I enter deeper into the “disillusionment” phase of the new teacher cycle, I’m certain that there will be times in which I doubt myself and the systems in which I find myself. But it’s moments like these, in which students show that they are brilliantly capable of making sense of science on their own terms, that provide the islands of inspiration that I know will keep me going.
It’s an outbrief of sorts from one of the clinical interviews that I am conducting with specific case study students throughout the year.
