Teacher of Physics and Forensic Chemistry
All class information will be posted on Google Classroom
Welcome to the school year 2022-2023! This year I will be teaching Physics and Forensics in addition to co-teaching a couple of classes, one in Chemistry and one in Environmental Science. I am a strong believer that the best way to learn science is by doing science. This year I am excited to be using an approach developed at Rutgers University by Professor Eugenia Etkina and her associates. The approach is called ISLE (for Investigative Science Learning Environment). Dr. Etkina developed the approach for teaching physics. We'll use it there for sure, and we'll see if it can be applied also to Forensics. In Forensics, as in past years, the units will be centered on famous cases - OJ Simpson, JonBenet Ramsey, Casey Anthony, The Atlanta Child Murders and the Zodiac. It's going to be a great year!
