          Well said. I would still ask you to reconsider what might be possible in constructivist teaching methods, especially with middle schoolers.

                  Syed, I really enjoyed reading this post for Excursion 4. It also led me to experience a little deja vu. When I was still a 7th grade science teacher, I also used this lab to teach about observations and the scientific method. I was fascinated...

                      Marissa, You have done a very solid job with this Excursion. Your observations are very clear and insightful. And you are clearly working to incorporate what you observed into your own teaching practice. I wanted to delve deeper into some of...

                                            BTS is a K-pop group (Korean pop). They are famous singers/dancers that have recently broke into the American market with their music and choreographed routines. They are my favorite K-pop group.
