One of my core beliefs is that provocative quotes and images can push teachers to rethink their practices in fundamental ways. I work hard to pair the two -- and then to use those quotes and images in the professional development work that I do.
This image -- which pairs a quote from Stuart Firestein with a Creative Commons graphic -- pushes teachers to think carefully about the true nature of scientific discovery, which is often a messy, nonlinear process. It would serve as the perfect conversation starter for teachers and staff working in a STEM school.
Print it out and turn it into a wall poster for your faculty lounge. Include it in a presentation that you are giving to your staff. Make it a centerpiece in your main office as a reminder to both parents and students of the school that you are trying to create.
The file that you are purchasing includes a PowerPoint slide that captures the Creative Commons license and attribution of the background image.
