If you have been introduced to three-dimensional science teaching and learning, chances are you’ve heard at least one of these: “phenomenon,” “anchor phenomenon,” or “phenomenon-based learning.” Phenomena engage students and may be equally exciting to teachers, but what are phenomena and why do they matter? In this video, PhD Science® Implementation Support Specialist Robby Hunter discusses the three types of phenomena.
Robby Hunter joined Great Minds as a PhD Science implementation support associate after spending 10 years teaching all subject areas in kindergarten inclusion as well as ESE (exceptional student education) in kindergarten through grade 6 in Florida and South Carolina. What he loves most about PhD Science is the student-led, hands-on approach the curriculum offers in every module. Currently, Robby works on the Implementation Support team facilitating professional learning to help teachers develop a deep understanding of this top-quality curriculum. He lives in Panama City Beach, Florida.
