Episode 76 – Not Another Lab Report

Fred Ende

Our guest this week is Fred Ende.  As a middle-school science teacher, Fred quickly became frustrated with cookie-cutter, partial inquiry and simple scientific method lab reports that rarely engaged students in the content.  Deciding to change this mode, Fred created open-ended lab experiences where students investigated their own questions, became interested in sharing their work, and ultimately improved their scientific writing.  Fred talks to Lab Out Loud about his experience in making scientific writing more relevant and student-centered.
