The Importance of Storytelling for Science Education: Weird, Funny, Useful

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
How James Joule's Honeymoon, Gilbert Lewis' mysterious death, killer Giant Beavers, and the cross-curricular story of Nylon can help to engage students, illuminate the process of science, and incorporate indigenous perspectives into your science teaching This talk will address the importance of storytelling for humanizing scientists and revealing the process of science in science education. Examples of stories (with curricular ties) are included for divisions 2-4, with an emphasis on high school (since that's my world). Attendees will leave with some stories they likely haven't heard before, and concrete ideas for using stories to help incorporate indigenous perspectives into their classroom.
