A Great Remote Lesson Opportunity!
Teachers, this is a great opportunity for your students to engage with leaders in their respective fields of research and science! Focused on a K-12 audience, these presentations are certain to educate and inspire.
To turn this into a “grade-able” opportunity, we recommend students prepare a journal entry before and after the presentation following these guidelines:
Pre-Talk Journal Entry
- Which speaker are you most interested in hearing from?
- Describe their background, specialty, and contribution to science and public health
- Write a question you’d like to hear them answer
Post-Talk Journal Entry
- Which was the most fascinating presentation to you? Why?
- What did you learn that surprised you?
- Did you get an answer to your question?
- What new questions do you have?
These simple prompts can kick-start a responsive lesson! If your students are interested in hearing answers from Dr. Greg-Gage, email us a compilation of their questions at firstname.lastname@example.org – and we’ll compile the questions and follow up with answers!
