You decided you wanted to be a science teacher.
You had dreams of creating meaningful connections and authentic science lessons that captivated your students and would teach them to believe in themselves and the power of education.
Then reality hit and now you are struggling with a capital S.
Each day seems to be a repeat of the last and that isn’t a good thing. You wonder how to get ahead while the added demands of your job keep piling up.
Time seems to be an ever-diminishing resource which means those hands-on lessons and experiments have been tossed out the window (along with your joy).
You’ve lost your way.
I believe you can be the creative, enthusiastic, hands-on science teacher you wish you had and still get those kids ready for the test!
You can turn things around, I’ve heard from teachers just like you.
“This was great for my kids!” – Valerie F.
“Thanks for your suggestion and motivation. I’m trying out a section of the 5E tomorrow, looking forward to seeing how it goes, the students are excited to learn more. “ – Jennifer I.
I know you are feeling overwhelmed now, but what if that could change?
Imagine waking up excited about class, like when you graduated from school.
Imagine being able to translate that excitement into personal satisfaction as you teach lessons that are connecting to your students and preparing them for exams.
Imagine feeling like time to plan isn’t an obstacle to overcome anymore.
When you become a member of The Learning Hypothesis community, you’ll learn strategies and find resources to help you be the creative, enthusiastic, hands-on science teacher you always planned to be.
When I first started teaching I fell into the trap of test prep or die. My students did well on their tests, but I was missing the chance to inspire any budding scientists and I left each day feeling more exhausted and burned out than the one before. Then I had a lightbulb moment.
I went from “delivering content” to my students to having them doing science through hands-on experiments, using real data to model, and problem-based learning projects.
I loved this new way of teaching, but I also didn’t want to throw out my previous work. So over the last decade, I have combined the things that worked with methods and hands-on ideas that not only get kids ready for the big test, but also nurture kids to become scientific thinkers.
I’m sharing my own journey to a more effective way to teach science so you don’t have to spend years figuring it out like I did.
How can I help you?
Are you looking for ways to flip to a more student-centered approach?
Are you just looking for a few things to round out your lessons?
You aren’t alone.
