The Nature of Science manual is an introductory science curriculum for middle school students receiving a classical, liberal arts education. The course is crafted to form in students a disposition of... More > receptivity towards the natural world and a holistic vision of the study of nature. The course emphasizes deep, careful reflection on in-class observations, experiments, and the students' ordinary experiences. In addition, it includes carefully selected original readings from the history of science which provide a theoretical foundation for thinking about the natural world and serve as models for scientific inquiry. To engage the question of the nature of science, students are exposed to the range of natural beings and concepts which are considered in science, and they are challenged to consider what it means to have scientific knowledge of natural beings. The curriculum has four parts: an introduction to nature and science, and subsequent introductions to biology, chemistry, and physics.< Less

These glue drops are essential in an immersion class, exposing students to vital words, phrases, and sentences far before they are addressed in a textbook. Glue Language thus supplies the “missing link” in second language learning and teaching. Additionally, the students are also enabled to assume the teacher’s role in teaching the Glue Language. Moreover, the scope of Student-Centered Learning may further be extended into textbook learning. Thus, Glue Language is the enabling tool for creating an immersion environment and for developing a winning Student-Centered immersion curriculum.< Less

More > member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, Gallagher currently holds the line against academic entropy in everything from pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade, from Physics to Phys Ed.
The fundamental stance of Sub: My Years Underground in America’s Schools is wry – it dares raise questions like why the guy who invented middle schools was never prosecuted for crimes against humanity. At the same time, Gallagher finds much of the current national debate on education misplaced – the system works just fine for some, but for others – particularly in much of urban black America – where they may be the only lifeline available, schools are asked to solve problems in children’s lives that are far beyond their scope.< Less
