High school chemistry teacher from Fairfax VA

Excited about new level of standards

Was this helpful?

As a chemistry teacher I am very excited to hear the increased rigor of the new sets of standards. The comment about "a mile wide and an inch deep" really sums up the level of understanding my students in the past have had regarding science. I am also excited to hear about elementary teachers taking more time for science. In January a 4th grade girl was sad because her teacher told her "We dont have time for science this year," and the little girl was hoping I could teacher her more about science. I do not understand why science is not more readily used at lower levels because it incorporates math, reading, writing, and critical thinking skills! PLEASE TEACH MORE SCIENCE!!!!!
