Beyond the Worksheet in the Science Classroom – Podcast Episode 44 | Classnotes Podcast Episode 44
Classnotes Podcast (November 21, 2008) What happens in the classroom powerfully impacts students’ perceptions of science. When worksheets are the order of the day, every day, students are likely to miss out on the joy of discovery, problem solving and critical thinking that science activities can bring. Veronica Betancourt, M.A., an IDRA education associate and developer of IDRA’s Science Smart! model, describes the purposes of using worksheets in the classrooms and engaging alternatives to their overuse. Veronica is interviewed by Christie Goodman, APR, IDRA’s communications manager.
