High School Biology at an inner-city public high school. 7th-12th grade Chemistry, Biology & Pre-Algebra at a small private school for gifted students
Collaborative, fast-faced learning. Many of my documents are practice-based, meaning "I show. We do. They do", and then continue to do/practice while I monitor their progress as they work throughout the remaining class time. Throughout lecturing and discussions I place a large emphasis on WHY we observe what we observe in nature, and HOW the scientists who have come before us have stumbled upon their discoveries. I try to recreate these discoveries the best I can with models and simulations.
