Redeeming Science Instruction: Some Proposed Principles with Applications in the Middle School Classroom

In this seminar, Jason will summarize his takeaways from the 2014 Alcuin Retreat by way of a proposal of principles essential to a classical, Christ-centered approach to science instruction. Jason will discuss what he believes must be rejected as well as what must be embraced if
we are to recover the true nature of science education. He will then describe some of the pedagogical experiments through which he has strived to execute aspects of this redemptive philosophy in his middle school science classes.
