Making it Accessible

A short article on the links between success in the classroom and success on the page.

"...there are many things I've learned from being a science writer that transfer extremely well to teaching. Here are three of them: (1) a student is a complete person, and the class he or she is taking is but one part of his or her life; (2) if I am not excited about something
, I can not hope to excite a student about something; and (3) no matter how exciting something is, it needs to be accessible."
