How People Learn

After reading Chapter 1 of Speculation to Science, I feel that the key concepts to internalize are that educators should learn to enable students to derive their own constructed answers from prior knowledge of what they already know. Teachers or as scientists are there to guide and train students to think like scientists and experiment things for themselves through trial and error. We are there to build on students' basic understanding of a scientific knowledge and expand on it by engaging students to critically think for themselves by asking the right guiding questions that will help steer them to the correct answer. Students are accountable to take control of their learning by simply building off prior knowledge with the support of stimulating the creativity of students' initial ideas and beliefs.
