Scientifically Thinking… » Details are Weeds in the Curriculum "Not all details are weeds. When a student grows a concept, the details grow as leaves and little rootlets. Those are details that students attach to a larger, meaningful structure in their mind, and details that support and strengthen the overall understanding as students connect them into place. Notice the shift to details that students are uncovering and connecting. Weeds are the details strewn about by teachers." Kewl!
