Looking for Your Opinion
Posted November 20, 2008on:
My 12th grade Physical Science class has been restructured. Basically, about half of my students had Physical Science in 9th grade at other schools and they all had Chemistry last year. While it’s still Physical Science, we are spending a great deal of time on astronomy and the basic physics they need to understand the universe. The kids are very excited about their astronomy course, as am I. I am thinking about showing them the entire series of “From the Earth to the Moon.” It’s long, real long. There are 12, one-hour episodes. I also plan on showing them Apollo 13. I’m just not sure I want to show twelve days of shows, but I don’t think there are any episodes I would leave out. Showing one, or even two a week will take too long, we’ll be done astronomy before I finish. So I’m looking for the opinions of other teachers. What do you think? What would you do?
