Talk – Strategies for Teaching Science

Strategies for Teaching Science

Dr. Jeffrey Bennett
April 15th at 4:00 PM
UW Physics-Astronomy Auditorium PAA A102.

In a presentation for educators, Dr. Jeffrey Bennett will discuss what it takes to be a successful science teacher. His presentation will focus on the idea that the key to success lies in finding ways to get students to put in the study and effort necessary for true learning. Concrete examples of principles and strategies will be provided that will help in your teaching, regardless of the particular science subject, grade level, or number of students taught.

Astrophysicist, author and educator Jeffrey Bennett’s extensive experience includes teaching at every level from preschool through graduate school, proposing and helping develop the Voyage Scale Model of the Solar System on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and serving two years as a Visiting Senior Scientist at NASA Headquarters, where he helped create numerous programs designed to build stronger links between the research and education communities.
