In this blog, I am sharing how I am mentoring a group of high school science students to write and publish a book about their science research experiences by April 2015 with the goal of selling 500 copies by the end of the school year.
One of the great things about a project like this is that I can have other students contribute in ways that accentuate their talents. Andrew Denaro is a student in one of my physics classes, and he showed me early in the school year that he was talented at making videos. He made an outstanding video describing one-dimensional motion, our first unit in physics. I asked him to help our student authors get information out about their books, and Andrew offered to do a video interview. Check it out (it’s only a few minutes long) and see these student authors firsthand: video interview.
Next week, my post will recap how some of the student authors and I presented our project to the Connecticut Science Teachers Association’s annual conference.
