The Noticing of Science

by Andy

I'd like to take a moment to appreciate Katie. She has developed a Science class at the Land School that focuses the students on noticing the changes that are happening in the natural world and finding ways to record and measure those changes. It is an open-ended class that allows the young people to decide what they want to learn and how they want to learn it. It starts with a lesson on how to "notice." This lesson includes a chance for them to practice noticing by doing a blind figure drawing of a peer. The technique is to not look at the paper while you are drawing someone's face.
