It is not only important to incorporate projects into the curriculum, but to ensure that these projects are actually strengthening the learning rather than just being busy work. This site is great for demonstrating the key components of what all goes into creating a good project.

Science Teaching Dyslexic Students in the Rainforest - Wendy Welshans

Science Teaching Dyslexic Students in the Rainforest - Wendy Welshans | The Challange of learning | Scoop.it

Great talk with Wendy Welshans today - she's an incredible teacher at the Forman School, a school for dyslexia, adhd, and learning differences. She has her own incredible personal story to tell but also an ambitious program for teaching students that buildings on their intellectual strengths.

Drs Fernette and Brock Eide at DyslexicAdvantage.com's curator insight, February 6, 2013 1:02 PM

What has this award-winning science teacher and researcher learned from 20 years of working with dyslexic students? "Keep the standards high. Give them a curriculum that respects their intelligence."


Wendy has done just that - she runs an innovative course for for high school students that teaches them in extensive detail about the Amazon rain forest ecosystem, with detailed specific examples that range from species, scientific questions (why does the orb weaving spider weave silk better at certain times of year), secondary metabolites, plants, animal and plant defenses, and practical, ethical, and sustainable aspects of rain forest products (25% of medicines are tropical plant-derived, 80% of spices are tropical plant-derived). Her students learn about international law and conservation issues and research they perform becomes part of the application for research visas for the following year, and perform real experiments based on cutting edge knowledge of science research. As Wendy says, she has them reading college texts and original research papers that many would not have thought possible.


Wendy's students' project culminates in a few-week field biology research trip to the Amazon Rainforest watch here and student dissertations at the end of the year. Her class' blog is here


Wendy told us that conventional science curricula can dissuade talented young dyslexic scientists because of their over-emphasis on activities (like writing detailed science journals) that many can't easily do.
