The Smithsonian Science Education Center worked with Fablevision Studios and science experts to produce the web series, Good Thinking! The Science of Teaching Science. Each of the short (about 6-10 minutes) animated videos is designed to address a common student idea or misconception about science. For example, one video disproves the unfortunately common “neuromyth” of people being either right-brained or left-brained – “Why Right-Brained is Wrong… Brained.” Each video offers detailed references regarding the research it is based on, as well as a professional development guide. Although the target audience of these videos is science teachers, some of them may also be good to show students. Before you embark on your next science unit, take a moment to explore Good Thinking! The Science of Teaching Science to find out how to make your lessons even better.
