Classnotes Podcast (October 15, 2007) Nurturing the budding scientists of the 21st Century to explore, discover and expand our universe is a new way of looking at science education. But this is precisely what is needed to shift from traditional science instruction approaches to a broader paradigm that affirms that all students really can learn science. Veronica Betancourt, M.A., an IDRA education associate and developer of IDRA’s Science Smart! model, discusses how minor tweaks in teaching practices can open giant doors for students, particularly for girls, minority students and English language learners. Veronica is interviewed by Bradley Scott, Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity.
