        Reading Response 1

        I found O’Neill and Barton’s (2005) journal very interesting. I agree that science education is not as strong in education as it should be. In my school this year, we didn’t start science until February, same with social studies. Science and Social Studies was hardly taught due ...

          Reading Response 2

          In the article, “Creating “Stickiness” Through Experiential Learning in Middle School Science Classrooms”, Ardito, Evans & Kim (2015) mentioned the quote from Kafai & Resnick (1996) stating, “ Children don’t get ideas; they make ideas.” This quote...

            Reading Response #1

            The reading in chapter 8 of Brown and Knowles was a refreshing reminder of many things I want to do or not do as a middle school educator. I enjoyed reading the material and became excited to try putting new methods into practice next school year. I felt that the chapter opened up in a powerful w...

              ED 524 Reading Response, Week #1

                After reading the weekly readings, I had a few take aways.  Firstly, I liked the way in which the book is written, making many statements, lists, and opportunities for reflection in an easy to read and understandable format.  One of the best parts of the book was that the auth...

                Reading Response, Week 2

                     At the school in which I teach, we don’t have a curriculum, a set of standards or a scope and sequence.  We are a ‘teaching’ school, and are home to many student teachers, interns, and observers, all who are constantly asking about how we make choices ab...

                  Reading Response #2

                  Much of the reading from Brown and Knowles' chapter 9 provided input about middle level teachers' and schools' experiences of curriculum to someone who may have little knowledge about it, but since I am in this setting, it was not all new information for me. However I really...

                    ED 524 Reading Response, Week #3

                    This week, as I read the readings I thought about how we always say “learn by doing” or “hands-on” learning.  Upon reflection of these terms, the readings by Brown and Knowles show exactly what this means.  It is more than just hands on learning that makes learni...

                      Reading Response 3

                      I thought the readings were eye opening in the sense of moving away from the traditional way of teaching, and inviting teachers to actually allow their students to infer and actually be active in their learning journey. “By inviting students to think about questions they have about themselv...

                        Reading Response #3

                        I enjoyed reading about different, personal, teacher experiences and perspectives with curriculum integration in chapters 10 and 11. I was particularly engaged in the case about Alpha, mostly due to some of the student feedback. On pages 168 a student reflects that, "the relationship be...
