In this video segment from Teaching Middle School Life Science, teacher Nanette Respess talks about her students’ experience working in groups as they test liquids and foods for specific nutrients. She explains that group work gives her an opportunity to assess her students, most of whom have been building their scientific knowledge and habits of mind over the past three to four years. As she walks around the classroom, moving from group to group, she seeks to address student weaknesses she has noted in previous activities.
