EPIC Science:  Educational Practices for Inclusive Classroom

HINTS & TIPS

Provide context to your explorations-a connection. 

Use experiments/demonstrations to illustrate key concepts.

Use child-world references:  examples and materials.

Provide children with multi-sensory opportunities, a sensory-rich environment.

Use multiple examples to convey key concepts.

Create embedded opportunities for further learning (take home projects, easy-to-repeat activities, and through topic/subject selection).

Share a story, a science story, using both words and illustrations.

 

What are science stories?

Science stories are interactive, content-driven explorations that can be adapted to individual teaching styles and student learning methods.  The science story approach provides educators with a framework for developing enriched science content.  

Science Stories…

Provide children with a structural framework for organizing information;

Identify and provide opportunities for dispelling common misconceptions;

Build confidence through active exploration and interactive discussion;

Encourage the direct application of inquiry and process skills;

Engage children in creative and critical thinking processes; and,

Give children the “license” to apply fundamentals to future explorations.
