I have had 10 years working with youth. Five of those years have been teaching at the high school level as a Chemistry and Biology teacher.
I am a firm believer in project based learning, however, we all know that does not provide the results that school districts are looking for. I Start the week with lots of direct teaching, lots of recall, and then assesment. I think labs or projects should be included at least once or twice a week to increase interest and reinforce the material. I am goofy, silly, and I have fun anyway I can. Blowing stuff up is my favorite!
