Inspiring Reading: A 3-D Look at Teaching Reading (K-5)

Inspiring Reading: A 3-D Look at Teaching Reading (K-5)

During our lit blocks, we plan for students to learn in three settings: whole class, small group, and independent. In this session, we will explore activities to foster literacy learning in these three settings. We’ll dive into a first-read minilesson to engage students with complex texts during your whole class teaching. Then we’ll examine a small group framework to enhance your guided reading instruction. Lastly, we’ll delve into coaching conversations you can use to confer with each student during independent reading.

Beyond climate: Understanding global change as a way to understand the nature of science and its role in society

Beyond climate: Understanding global change as a way to understand the nature of science and its role in society

Global warming and its effects are in the news all the time, because scientific consensus links warming to heat waves, droughts, rising sea levels, melting glaciers, stronger hurricanes, and changes in ecosystem function. But climate change is just one way human activities affect the biosphere. Our species has become the single most important driver of global change – which is why so many scientists refer to the present time as the Anthropocene, which means (more or less) “The age of humanity.” This talk will focus on the Understanding Global Change project, which aims to create a conceptual framework to help us get a handle on this complicated and interdisciplinary phenomenon.

Half Lives: Not Just for Radioactives

Half Lives: Not Just for Radioactives

Imagining how kinetics applies to your everyday life seems like a monumental task. The reality is that the kinetics of chemical reactions is connected to everything in your everyday life, so it’s tough to narrow it down – but we can try! Have you ever noticed how different medications have different dose timings? Some are taken every 8 hours, some taken every 12 hours, and some medications can even be given all in one dose. The rate law, and specifically the half life of that medication, determines how often it is administered because it determines how long the medication stays in your body. This is also true for chemicals like caffeine and ethanol, where the effect of the rate law can sometimes have a dangerous outcome.
