PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

WHAT DO I TEACH ON THE FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL
IN SCIENCE - - DAY ONE
WHO IS A SCIENTIST

Stereotypes of scientists abound: The nerd with the pencil protector and the wild haired physicist (both white males) fill the scientific landscape with inaccurate cartoon antics. Scientists come in both sexes and every imaginable race and ethnic group. In fact, we are all scientists if we simply experiment with something new or evaluate the underlying principals of human interaction.

The Lesson contains Cognitive Student Engagement: Students must address, identify, and surgically alter their misconceptions of the scientist stereotype.
Academic Rigor: Students are given the time to navigate their own thought processes, reflectively analyze their naïve conceptions, and voluntarily change their perspective.
