Join us for a FREE #NJSTAChats virtual session designed to support your remote science teaching.
July 15th from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
In this #NJSTAchats, our guest will be Dr. Doug Larkin, Associate Professor in Teaching and Learning from Montclair State University. Dr. Larkin will draw from his research investigating the ways in which science teachers learn the pedagogical implications of student diversity, both in and beyond the science classroom, with the aim of culturally relevant science teaching. For many teachers, the task of figuring out how to best represent science content so that it can be understood by students is the key intellectual task of teaching, and this can be even more challenging when cultural differences exist between teachers and students. Dr. Larkin will share examples from real world classrooms and share findings that have implications for both science teacher preparation and research, and will reframe what it means for teachers to "meet students where they are.”
Dr. Larkin's book, Teaching Science in Diverse Classrooms, is available from Amazon (HERE). You do NOT need to have read the book or listened to the podcast to participate in our chat. Dr. Larkin has also created a weekly podcast out of chapters from his book which is available on Spotify, iTunes, Anchor. and other podcast services: https://anchor.fm/douglas-larkin.
