Using Covid-19 as a Teachable Moment
Interested in teaching the science of Covid-19? Two experienced high school science teachers will share ideas about transforming the crisis into a teachable moment.
How can we help students find comfort during challenging times by making real-world connections to academic subjects? How can we encourage them to use what they already know to make sense of the unknown? What happens locally when a national emergency becomes a global pandemic? Join teachers Nikki Wallace and David Moscarelli for this webinar on teaching the science of Covid-19.
Nikki Wallace is an experienced teacher and former researcher with a particular interest in teaching high school students to do real science experimentation in the biology classroom. Skilled in design thinking, problem-based learning, science education, literacy, classroom management, and curriculum design, she holds a masters of education in secondary education biology from Grand Canyon University.
David Moscarelli has been a teacher at Ponaganset High School for almost 30 years and was Rhode Island Teacher of the Year in 2015. His teaching covers a wide range of science courses, including alternative energy, biology, physical science, AP environmental science, and two courses he has designed and taught: animal behavior and ecosystems. He has been the instructional-technology coordinator at the school, working with his colleagues on the integration of technology into the classroom.
