Assessing Students’ Background Knowledge in Science Classes

Presented by Michael Buoni
Session Type: Conversation

Biology, Chemistry and Physics: What do your students really know before they get to your class? This session will share ways we can identify students’ background knowledge for greater success. Many time as educators in science, we assume that students should know things before coming to us. It isn’t our problem if they didn’t learn it before, right? Wrong! This session will provide you with examples of how to quickly assess students’ understanding of a topic BEFORE you teach, and how it can pay off in greater student success.
