Rethinking Science Education – An Interview with Bob Goodman
In this conversation, Alan November and Bob Goodman, Director of the New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning, discuss the inspiring work he is leading in the redesign of science curriculum. Through a logical reorganization of content, a rethinking of what good homework looks like and a robust teacher development program that has been initiated, students are graduating high school with an understanding of science at a depth that is truly remarkable.
The curriculum being used in this endeavor is free and open to use by anyone. It can be found at http://www.njctl.org.
