Rescheduled because of bad weather, Wilcox-Hildreth Middle School recently held their first Science Discovery Day. Science teacher Karen Piel introduced the event to show the community how students are learning the subject by ‘doing science’.
The Nebraska School Board of Education adopted new science standards in September that focus on the use of critical thinking which makes traditional testing for understanding difficult. Piel solved the matter in her classroom by having her students show what they learn using the scientific method.
“This is the first year of trying to train us how to use the new curriculum. The goal is less vocabulary and memorization and more being able to apply the knowledge outside the classroom,” Piel said.
