Sarah's Notes

Imagine yourself sitting at a student’s desk. You often hear your teacher referring to you and your classmates as “children” or “students.” And then, one day, you hear “scientist,” “scholar,” or “engineer.” All of a sudden, you sit up taller, listen more carefully, and feel a different sense of purpose in the lesson at hand. In fact, it might not even feel like a lesson anymore. Now, more like what scientists, scholars, and engineers do. Go inside Suney Park’s classroom to see how you can use language to encourage academic success.
