Author Biography - Laurie Westphal
Laurie Westphal learned science in the same manner as many other students, through the use of chapter questions, copying notes, and reading various chapters in the science textbook. After questioning this practice, she decided to teach science to try and break the mold. Westphal was given the freedom to develop engaging product-based lessons and activities for her students, the kind of teaching she missed while in school. After using this method of teaching science for 14 years, both overseas and in the United States, as well as presenting staff development and working with gifted education, she now works as an independent gifted education and science consultant. Laurie has made it her goal to share her vision for real-world, product-based lessons that help students become scientific critical thinkers and effective problem solvers, rather than simply question answerers.
