My central goal for my students is that they gain the skills needed to think about science critically, both in and outside of my classroom. I believe in an active learning approach, where students engage with data and think critically about it. This may involve classroom activities, small discussions, lab experiences and/or field trips. The variety of experiences built into this process engages a diverse group of learning styles, and fosters independent reasoning and critical thinking.
