LabLearner Discussions are designed for you to sit and discuss science topics with your child/student. Each slide contains rich content to stimulate intelligent discussion with your student regardless of their age. No more than 30 minutes needs to or should be devoted to LabLearner Discussions in any single learning session. Reviewing completed Discussions, on the other hand, will help your child retain the information.
Each slide is accompanied with limited text as a discussion guide. LabLearner maintains that directed discussion is one of the most powerful ways we can interact with and learn from each other. Such exchanges build depth of knowledge and critical thinking skills in your student (and you). Plus, its fun…give it a try!
LabLearner Discussions Samples
Biomes and Water (Primary+)
This link provides an example of a Primary+ LabLearner Discussion. Primary Discussions are geared toward parent/student engagements and are written addressing an adult reader. Consequently, students through middle school and beyond can benefit from this level of instruction.
Kinetic and Potential Energy (Intermediate+)
This link leads to an example of an Intermediate+ LabLearner Discussion, Kinetic and Potential Energy. The text accompanying each Intermediate+ Discussion is appropriate for either parent discussions or discussions between intermediate and middle school students.
