Have you ever wished you could see into the minds of your students? The Smithsonian Science Education Center has partnered with FableVision Studios to create a new animated web series that helps teachers do just that. Good Thinking! The Science of Teaching Science is designed to support K–12 science educators through targeted short-format videos that explore common student ideas and misconceptions about a range of science topics, such as energy, chemical reactions, and natural selection, as well as pedagogical subjects such as student motivation and the myth of left- and right-brained people. Each episode is grounded in findings from peer-reviewed science and educational research vetted by experts, and was developed with national standards in mind.
