ascd.org You could hear a pin drop in my childhood math classes. We sat in rows, worked on our own, listened to the teacher at the center of the classroom, and spoke only when spoken to. Today, there is a growing understanding that academic discourse and peer-to-peer collaboration help all students make lear...

Teaching science and math is extremely important. It teaches kids Inquiry, comprehension, critical thinking, and problem solving. We need more of it in our schools. Plus, when children like what they are learning they will engage, learn and read more.
“Science is winning more students' enthusiasm. Between 2009 and 2015, the percentage of students calling it a favorite subject rose 2 percentage points in 4th and 12th grades, and 5 points in 8th grade.
And interest in science among the lower-performing students at all grade levels is rising. Fourth and 8th graders scoring in the lowest quartile each showed a 2 percentage-point gain in interest in science, and 12th graders showed a 1 point increase.
Among students in the highest-scoring quartile, interest in science rose wildly among 8th graders: 23 percent of students said science was a favorite subject in 2009, but by 2015, that number was up to 31 percent. In 4th grade, interest among higher-scoring students was flat, at 30 percent, and in 12th grade it rose 6 percentage points, with 33 percent of students reporting that science is a favorite subject.”
What a respectable ceremony for the ground breaking for the Lucy Beckham High School.
