I was recently reading the March/April 2021 issue of “The Science Teacher” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read the section “Commentary” written by Andrew Zucker.  Andrew wrote an article entitled “Teaching Scientific Literacy.”

Here are five themes to consider in order to promote scientific literacy:

  • Pay attention to the personal and societal contexts of science.
  • Relate scientific literacy to traditional forms of literacy.
  • Teach about how to find reliable information about science and how to reject junk science.
  • Include some important events in the history of science.
  • Help females and minority students realize their potential in science.

    The Ron Burgundy Podcast

    Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
