    1. I do have this hands-on lab on genetic engineering, but I know there are many other hands on activities on punnett squares, and I know nitty gritty science, Biology Roots, and Amy Brown Science have some.

    1. Labs are keep to make science engaging, fun, and more understandable especially at that age! Here is one of my favorite freebie labs for middle school in my store. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Static-Electricity-Lab-271170?aref=o1p3tu8y

    1. That's a good idea...that's the way things are going. I haven't done much that is Next Gen yet. I know Nitty Gritty Science has some NGSS resources, and a few others above.

    2. Same here..looking for NGSS especially assessment ideas.

  7. I would love to see any information about lab stations for Life Science or Physical Science.

    1. I love doing stations. I have some stations, but I have to say, I think Kesler Science is the expert on stations!

  8. Inquiry based labs would be great!

    1. Inquiry labs are really good for students. Here is a free inquiry based lab from my store https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Bouyancy-Diving-Ketchup-1157273?aref=o1p3tu8y Its a good place to start with students for designing their experiment.

  9. I would love to see some resources for quick demos to get kids excited

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Quick demos are good. Another way I like to do some of these is through video clips. http://www.scienceinthecityclassroom.com/2013/11/the-power-of-videos.html What topic demos are you looking for? The ketchup freebie mentioned above can also be done as a quick demo.

      Delete
  10. I would love to read about classroom management.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I haven't written a lot about classroom management. I think a lot can be said for keeping students engaged, having clear expectations and routines, etc. I think that's another good idea to add to my blog post list. The differentiation ideas the next person asked about may help you as well.

      Delete
  11. I would love to read about differentiation for very low performing students.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Differentiation is one of my favorite topics. I have written quite a bit http://www.scienceinthecityclassroom.com/search/label/differentiation

      Some of my activities in my store are differentiated, and I know Getting Nerdy with Mel and Gerdy have a lot of differentiated activities as well.

    1. The ketchup freebie that I posted above is a good intro activity, sometimes I like to have students do measurement stations at the start of school, or my observation/inference/hypothesis pack. I also have done a fun oreo cookie lab where they have to measure and determine if double stuff oreos really have double the filling. That will be finished and posted soon :)

  13. I would like ideas on how to incorporate blended learning and project-based activities into biology.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have quite a few blog posts on technology. Some of those might help you with blended-learning, but I will that's a great idea for a specific post to write as well. I am now working in an online environment/blended learning, so I could definitely write about that. http://www.scienceinthecityclassroom.com/search/label/technology

      Project-based activities is a great idea. Can be difficult to implement, depending upon your students and classroom culture. What type of projects did you have in mind?

      Delete
  14. I would love more ideas for STEM or STEAM.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's a great idea. Not something I have done as much as I would like in my own classroom, but definitely an interest that I would like to write more about. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Delete
  15. I LOVE that you place an emphasis on ALL students. I work at an inner-city school in Memphis, TN -- a place where many students are often left behind. I look forward to looking into more of your biology resources!

    1. Thank you. As you probably gathered I work in an inner-city setting too. Before that I worked in special education. That is very important to me.

  16. I love to see fresh ideas for labs/lab stations. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the suggestion. That is something I have written a little bit about, and I have some free labs in my store (the static electricity and diving ketchup ones are two of my favorites). But definitely room to write more, especially about stations. I do a lot of stations. Thanks for the blog post suggestion!

  19. I would like some ideas for implementing the workshop model in science. It is an expectation of my district and I find it is not always conducive to the science classroom. I am also trying interactive science notebooks for the first time and am looking for new ideas!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks! Workshop model can be a good fit for science. I think that would be a good topic to write about. Thanks for the suggestion. I have written some about interactive notebooks. Here is a post related to interactive science notebooks.

      Here is on http://www.scienceinthecityclassroom.com/2014/11/how-i-do-interactive-notebooks.html

  20. I know you have some information, but I would love to see more on implementing digital interactive notebooks. I used paper ones last year, but am moving to a district where I have a classroom set of chromebooks that I would love to utilize.

    1. Hi, this is a great topic that I would like to write more about. I would suggest using google slides, rather than docs, as it is easier to keep the pages organized. Check out Study all Knight is really the expert on digital interactive notebooks, and a great resource http://www.studyallknight.com/search/label/digital%20notebooks?&max-results=20

  25. I teach Biology, Physics and Algebra 1 to English Language Learners and I am looking for resources on integrating ELA skills into the content area.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you for the comment. This is one of my areas of interest. I started certification for ELL, but didn't complete it. We have a high population of ELL's where I work, as well as a lot that are simply low level readers.

      I have written some, under the literacy tab at the top of my site. Look for more in this area :)
