The Cell is a City (and the Other Lies That We Tell)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Reuben and Brad take you through the world of teaching High School Biology, Chemistry and Physics in those moments when you cross into the realm of "not quite the truth". In this session, we discuss the usefulness and shortcomings of models and analogies in teaching High School Science. Best practices in navigating the waters of "lying" to your students are offered as well as some humorous moments from the pair's teaching experience.
