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.
