Angela Pagano, Biological Sciences Department, along with adolescence education: earth science majors and SUNY Cortland Noyce Scholars Brendan Creegan and Eric Reisweber, presented “Using Stories to Teach Science” at the Noyce NE Regional Conference held from March 20-22 in Philadelphia, Pa. Placing scientific information into a relevant context is important for student engagement and deeper understanding of scientific content. For example, the framework for the Next Generation Science Standards suggests the use of history of science stories or cases as an important approach for providing the context for developing students’ understanding of the nature of science. Presenters gave an overview of the importance of communicating science, worked though a selection of activities, and provided examples of stories that can be incorporated into the secondary science curriculum.
