I have been thinking about peer review and how this fits in with NOS in the classroom. I have been attending weekly team meetings where one person presents their work and there is an open discussion about it.
It is not personal, and it is definitely helpful to the presenter. How can I replicate this in my classroom? As Andrea Benwell said in her post on NOS, we are surrounded by it in all aspects.
Under the values section of the curriculum we are asked to help students "develop their abilities to discuss disagreements that arise from differences in values and negotiate solutions."
It seems to me that science might just be the perfect vehicle for this. How do you all go about this in your classes?
