My high school students are trying hard to figure out how they will fit into the world when they graduate. Some will go off to college, some to the military, and many will enter the workforce. They all have dreams and goals that motivate them to strive for greatness.
Navigating this time between childhood and adulthood can be difficult for students.
I try to find ways to make learning fun and exciting while also giving students some autonomy. The more tools I have in my metaphorical toolbelt, the longer I can keep the students engaged.
Physics is a math heavy subject that requires students to think about the way things work. They need to remember terms and definitions that they may not be familiar with using on an everyday basis.
Doodle notes are a fun way to allow students to interact with the material they are learning.
It has been proven that when our brain is trying to recall facts, it can associate words, phrases, colors, or even the places they were seen. I have had students tell me they remembered some material for a test by thinking about what they wrote or drew around it when we were taking notes.
