(Note: This is the third post in a four-part series on teaching science. You can see Part One here and Part Two here) Two weeks ago I posed this question: What is the best advice you would give to help an educator become better at teaching science?

Part One appeared last Monday, and featured advice from Dr. Carl Wieman, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2001. Linda Shore, director ...

(Note: This is Part Two of a multi-post series on teaching character in schools. You can see Part One here) I asked: Should we teach "character" in our schools? If so, what does it look like? If not, why not? I posted an interview with journalist Paul Tough discussing this issue last week.
