I loved the quote on the last tape... "Don't limit children to only knowing
what you know." My science teaching in the past was like that because I
didn't know how to develop inquiry skills in students. There is a lot of
science content knowledge that I've taught while I wondered in the back of
my head "why do the students need to know this?" If they learn HOW to be
good questioners and investigators, then the trivial content knowledge has
less value. "Learn it for the test and then forget it" types of behaviors
will decrease if the learning is relevant to what the child will need for
life. If students ever need to know more information about a topic and
they've learned in school how to be good learners, then they'll be able to
find out the information that they need.
