Welcome to Teach With Science:

Below, you will see three main focus areas. Each subheading is a deep dive into the specific content. These are perfect for staff meetings, early release training days, workshops at conferences, small meetup groups or homeschooling collaborations. It is always important to take in the research and apply it in a way that works for you in your setting. 

During each session:

  • explore the science and research behind each topic

  • consider current practice and set transformation goals

  • engage with techniques applicable to your practice

  • reflect and devise a practical approach within your setting

  • review take home literature

These sessions can be adapted to whatever space and time you have, let me know what you need and we can come up with a plan together to best fit your purpose.  

Current Trends

During these sessions, we will dive into hot topics and 'buzz words' in education, what they mean and how to apply these ideas to your practice.

  • design thinking: looking into the stanford D. School approach and considering why it is important to have a growth mindset; framing your approach to reflect 

  • grit and other soft skills: how to work 'soft skill' acquisition naturally into your curriculum 

  • mindfulness: shifting the way you think about yourself as a professional and the way you think of your students through techniques such as sharing common language

  • cooperative learning: how to explicitly teach skills of communication and collaboration in order to integrate social learning experiences and benefit the classroom learning environment 

  • unschooling:  learn about practices to assist your child in driving their personal passion projects at home; finding a balance between freedom and educational accountability and academic preparedness  

  • stewardship: dive into how your children begin to understand the importance of community and how they grow through levels of connectivity

In The Classroom

During these sessions, we will dig into the true responsibilities of teachers. What are the actions we take each day and how do they impact our students and families?  

  • Documentation: how to use documentation to make learning visible as an educational tool in the classroom for assessments and growth

  • Classroom community: how to engage families and students in meaningful ways during any interaction in effort to build a group who care about eachother 

  • Developing a Positive community: the importance of being a model for your students and how to instill proper values and positive behavior; teaching students how to be contributing members of the community

  • Classroom and Time Management: looking into behavior and our role allows us to mediate and even prevent conflict. Effective planning of the day allows us to keep our kids feeling regular. It is our job to keep the rhythm for young children who are growing their sense of time

Break It Down

During these sessions, we are going to dive deep into pedagogy, the roots and how our teaching can benefit from adding layers to our practice.

  • Silent pedagogy: learning more about how to apply the practice of listening more than you speak, allowing children to use their voice and how to use language and communication to benefit your relationships and interaction with students

  • Place Based Education: helping students connect with the place they live and tackle the meaningful problems closest to home
  • Project Based Education: how students benefit from self-directed, inquiry based learning​
  • Integrating time outside: what is the difference between a program that integrates nature and forest school? How to implement best outdoor practices into any setting and find the right balance for you.
