This is the website for students in STEM-Ed 410 who will be working with Dr. Leslie Atkins Elliott. Our syllabus for the course can be found here and a schedule for the entire class is here. Below are links to information you will need for each week; it will be populated with more information throughout the semester. To view the links (most of which are stored on Google Drive) and to submit the homework you will need to be logged in to your Boise State account. You should also buy Becoming a Responsive Science Teacher (no need to use that retailer – you can likely find it cheaper elsewhere). Each week with me you will submit a survey, do a homework (with readings), and do a video analysis.
