See you in Anaheim (NSTA)?

I hope to see you in Anaheim at NSTA this week. I'll be presenting, but I have been given probably the worst presentation slot possible! I'll be presenting at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning in room 211B of the convention center. My topic will be the research base for traditional teaching vs. Inquiry. I'm going to have us look at the evidence from personal experience, from national and international comparisons, and from cognitive science. This presentation is part of an effort I'm making to try to line out how clear the research is that traditional instruction is bad for kids.

I have to attend NARST earlier in the week; so, I'll be at NSTA only on Friday and Saturday. Let me know if you want to try to get together.
