I have learned SO much by using the Roadkill storyline. It has changed EVERYTHING. One thing that I love is the continuity - the returning again and again to deep concepts (such as conservation of matter) so that it really sinks in.

I’m interviewing someone who did that in a high school chemistry class in Chicago—environmental racism. Will be out in November.

What’s most dismal about this theoretically is that every single balloon which floats into the atmosphere and eventually pops has the potential to kill not one, but multiple organisms as the plastic breaks down incrementally over time. This is saddening to observe...

A possible to introduce concepts of light and how we sense or perceive it: 'The cones do this quickly--after about five minutes, their sensitivity maxes out. After about 10 minutes in a darker place, your rods finally catch up and take over.'

Fascinating topic and article, with some good insights on the important work that teachers do: "Watching my mother prepare lessons to help kids learn how to read night after night, imbued me with a deep respect for the work that teachers do."

How can we reimagine our approaches to academic vocabulary so it isn’t a barrier to learning? Note: Frontloading vocab is not an answer that is high impact.

"we know that scientific concepts are learned and solidified when students have an opportunity to explain them. The more you talk about something, the more you understand it. But in many schools, especially urban ones, teachers are the ones doing the explaining."

I wouldn’t be able to claim to know much about (and I still have a lot to learn) if it were not for the community of teachers, graduate students, and K-12 students who worked me along the way. Thanks, y’all.
