"The Private Eye changes the emphasis from that of a 'teacher centered' learning environment to that of a 'student centered' one.  I can’t wait to get started and feel that this class has reinvigorated my own interest in science and teaching science for good."

"I loved the way Kerry walked the room as we had group discussions and wrote down all we were saying and then asked us questions and probed for deeper meaning.  The probing for deeper observation and making connections is going to be essential for my students." 
—Sara Bryant

I am especially excited about introducing the students (and my family) to a new way of thinking and looking at their world."

"When I initially signed up for this course back in the spring, I honestly did it just to add credits to my list of professional development....  However, at the completion of this course I almost can’t believe how lucky I was to find it.  It really seems like it has been a bit of a life-changer in terms of my life as a teacher.  It has opened my eyes to how learning, real learning, can be achieved. 

So often it feels like memorizing has replaced the act of learning and it always seems so unfair to my students yet it also feels like with everything we require of them there isn’t time for in-depth exploration and learning.  Imagine, no time for learning in school.  Mind boggling.  It is wonderful to have this tool that makes time for learning."
