What is Exemplary Science Teaching
Exemplary science teaching is when teachers provide a learning environment for their students that fosters a deeper understanding of science through inquiry, discussion, exploration, and reading. This type of teaching motivates students to make connections to the world around them rather than just having students listen to lectures and memorize concepts.

What This Will Look Like in My Classroom
In my future classroom, I plan on creating an environment where my students can explore the world of science in a way that is beneficial to them. I will get to know my students and the way that they prefer to learn and adapt the way I teach based on them. I will facilitate a mixture of activities and hands-on experiments that will encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, and group discussions. Some of these activities include:
- Going on field trips
- Using technology
- Science fairs
- Group projects
- Group discussions
- Current events
- Challenges or Competitions
