NGSS Nature of Science Reflection

Read over the eight Nature of Science categories that the Next Generation Science Standards put out. There will be some that we did not cover very deeply yet in class. Choose at least two Nature of Science categories you find interesting and discuss them in some detail. In your response, answer at least two of the following questions:

Do you agree or disagree with a particular category, or does one surprise you? Why?
Do you think some categories are more important than others? Why?
Is a certain point too vague, leaving you with questions? Why?
Would you find certain points easier to teach than others? Why?
Your response should be no more than 1 double-spaced page.  An “A” paper will be one that goes deeper than simply restating what you read. Put your response in your own words, organize your thinking, and defend your opinions with textual evidence.
