Ambitious Science Teaching

Ambitious Science Teaching offers tools and ideas for K-12 science classrooms and serves as a social networking site for science educators. Created by the University of Washington, with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Ambitious Science Teaching is a pedagogical philosophy that emphasizes student-centered inquiry and learning and authentic assessments. On this website, teachers can check out video guides that demonstrate the principles of this pedagogy. In addition, the website includes a Video gallery with videos of full lessons - or even units - accompanied by written explanations of the instructor's objectives and strategies. For example, one resource features video clips from a nine-day unit about the physics of sound from a 9th grade physical science class. Meanwhile, in the Tools section, teachers can download a variety of graphic organizers, templates, unit guides, and more. Finally, science teachers looking to connect with other instructors in their field and share ideas can do so via the Community aspect of this website.
