In this episode, Nicole breaks down how you can move away from “teaching as telling” toward a discovery-centered approach more in line with the intent of the Next Generation Science Standards. Learn what “teaching as telling” really is, evaluate whether YOU are guilty of this teaching approach (probably, because we all have been there!), and explore a new way to approach lesson planning and the development of student understanding.
