Note from a Teacher: I am a veteran teacher of 24 years who teaches in a dual language program. This is my 2nd year teaching Science and I'm not satisfied with the way it has been going. Thank goodness I found your site! I have always been a hands-on interactive teacher, but because of my added responsibilities at school, I absolutely have no time to hunt anything down! Again, thank goodness I found your site. Just having a compilation of the different topics will make everything so much easier.
Note from a Teacher: I want to personally thank you for all the great teaching lessons that you have written.  I have used your ideas for a couple years now. I just felt compelled to email you and again, say THANK YOU SO MUCH. I am becoming a better teacher through your guidance. 

Note from a Teacher: Your material has been great. It has changed how I teach dramatically and the students have responded favorably.


I have 24 kids in summer school for earth science, with 3/4 of them needing modifications and lower reading levels - your work is great for them, exciting and quick. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this project - it is terrific. --From a NY Teacher
I have been using these resources and they are really great. I have been teaching for 9 years and finding really good things to use for Earth and Space is sometimes  difficult.  These will be the basis of my class. Thanks

Note from a Teacher: I just discovered and love your website. I’ve been doing something like the “Weathering Walk” for years but it just hasn’t been as productive as I would like and this sounds like a much better way. I’m looking forward to trying it out this week. 

A Thank You Note
from my nephew, Christian, who used my
Weathering Unit in the fall of 2007.

"Just wanted to drop another THANK YOU, Aunt Marcia. I have most enjoyed the Power Points. I made minor adjustments to the PPT so that students get a chance to guess what's coming next. [Great Idea!] They are such a big help! I'm not sure how else to get the kids into some of these ideas without these wonderful visual examples. The cutting and pasting is going well also. At first a couple kids would mumble, "Not cutting again!" But now I limit the time they have to use their scissors (5 min) and then I take the scissors back and launch into the lesson. [Another great idea!] Your observation about the cut and paste worksheets being so much better than their own notes is 150% correct! Now when I get to review and additional sheets I just tell them to find the worksheet and away they go (at least, the ones who haven't lost it). Anyway, we're hopefully going on the weathering walk tomorrow (weather permitting)."
Update from Christian: September, 2012:
Active Learning Teaching Idea at STI
Hi, Aunt Marcia, Just wanted you to know that I used the cut and paste today with 2 classes of seniors in high school (!) and not only did I NOT get any grumbling, they were completely dialed in! So excited to use more active learning now that I'm back in the classroom! Thanks again for sharing! --Christian

My Response:
LOVE this! Smart to put definitions down and PASTE the words! Also like the idea of circling one and adding a one sentence response! I never thought of that! Could be done with any set of words! With any type of question! Way to go!


NOTE: Christian teaches at the HOPE Christian Schools Senior High School in Milwaukee, WI. He is a remarkable teacher! I'm very impressed with this organization! They send almost all their inner-city seniors to college every year!

Note from a Teacher: I have just started my unit on Plate Tectonics, and I tried out your Earth's layers foldable with my students this week.  I have to tell you how wonderful an idea these foldables are!  Every single one of my 100 students was engaged in this activity - and that has NEVER happened in my 8 years of teaching.  It was incredible!...So, thank you for that awesome resource...that one activity has convinced me that a completely active classroom is the way to go.
Note from a Teacher: THANK YOU for your website. Although I have been teaching for years, this is my first year teaching Earth Science. I have found your resources to be invaluable.
I’ve just finished using your Plate Tectonics lesson plans and the students loved it. The Wegener’s Evidence foldable was the best. After completing the foldable and answering the questions, the students were experts!
