Episode 08 – Christi Mendoza & George Nelson – "Modeling in the Middle Schools"

In this conversation, Christi Medoza and George Nelson talk about modeling at the middle school level. They talk about the challenges some teachers see in the variety of topics covered in middle school science, but the wonderful way that modeling instruction lets us adjust the way things are done in class, and let the students lead the way in discovering the way various phenomena work. They each share the biggest changes to their thinking or practice that came as a result of discovering modeling instruction.
