Student Teaching

I started student teaching at H.B. DuPont Middle at the beginning of January. The end of my studies is finally in sight! I jumped right in the second day teaching all five periods of seventh grade science. It has been a very rewarding experience full of personal growth. I have to say it is one of the most challenging things that I have done in my life so far.
The kids are great. We are studying the cell. I helped to design and execute two lessons so far. We pretended to be Crime Scene Investigators doing cheek swabs. We observed dyed epithelial cells under the microscope. The lesson was a great hit. My second lesson was an experiment demonstrating diffusion and osmosis. It was nice and messy and included a lot of steps.
I am looking forward to spreading the word about science for a couple more months.
