Lesson Study

Three weeks of studying teaching methods and chemistry lessons in two states and with amazing teachers is wonderful, but all good things must come to an end and having a clothes dresser and a bookshelf is starting to sound very attractive. I look forward to returning to Bentley Farm tomorrow. It will be fun to encounter the incredible progress of the past month at Bentley that has been so well documented on the BFG, thanks to Mom’s burgeoning photographic/journalistic talents!

In the meantime, though, a slice of life from Chicago with eighty other Knowles Science Teaching Foundation Fellows: chairs, computers and nuclear chemistry lesson study partners (this is our third summer studying nuclear together and finally our lessons have bonded - hopefully through fusion and not fission!).
