    To enter science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) high schools, students must acquire the desire and foundational skills for success in science at an early age. Science instruction is often overlooked in elementary school. Reasons include an overemphasis on literacy and mathematics due to standards-based testing and teachers’ lack of professional development in teaching science. This literature review employed a case study design to examine the impact and the current standings of the 1996 National Science Education Standards (NSES) call for “Exemplary Science in Grades PreK-4 (Yager, p. vii).” These standards are being used because the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were still in development in April of 2013, and…

    More than ever, K-12 science educators in the U.S. are encouraged to take a more rigorous approach with their teaching and PD. Prior to 2001, literature on PD for K-12 teachers has mainly focused on PD as a key determinant in improving teacher satisfaction, with the belief that teaching practices and student performance will improve as a result (Cohen & Hill, 2000; Darling-Hammond & McLaughlin, 1995; Elmore, 1997). The recent push for teacher development was fueled by the 2001 No Child Left…

    Kohn’s article “The Case against Grades” (Kohn, 2011) effectively captures the anxiety that most students have about grades. “In fact, students would be a lot better off without either of these relics from a less enlightened age” (Kohn, 2011) Kohn writes. I agree with Kohn’s position in this article because there were many days in high school where I remember skipping due to the fact that I didn’t fully understand what was being taught to me. I, in turn, grew anxious about not being good enough…

    My earliest memory of science is from 5th grade in Mr. Kern’s class. I remember we had a unit on sea creatures, and we got to take care of and study fish and crawfish. I loved this activity because it was so hands on and we were the caretakers of the creatures, so we did all the work. It was really our own experiment, not just something out of a book. We all loved coming into class in the morning and running to see our new pets, and one day I noticed my crawfish had lost its shell. We learned…
