Lingo Likes: The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science


Click here to see more sites we like!

While Lingo isn’t teaching kids to read, the famous Reading Kingdom owl can be found surfing the web for great websites related to all things educational.  This week’s site Lingo likes is The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at the University at Buffalo.  Here’s more about them from their website:

“The mission of the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at the University at Buffalo is to promote the development and dissemination of materials and practices for case teaching in the sciences.  Our website provides access to an award-winning collection of peer-reviewed case studies.  We offer a five-day summer workshop and a two-day fall conference to train faculty in the case method of teaching science.  In addition, we are actively engaged in educational research to assess the impact of the case method on student learning. Our work over the years has been generously supported by the National Science Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and the U.S. Department of Education.”

Now that we’ve finished sharing this great educational website, Lingo is off on another adventure through the Reading Kingdom and beyond!

While you’re still here, join us for a free 30 day trial of our reading website for kids that is teaching to read up to a third grade reading level.  We’ll see you soon!

“I love how the program is customized to teach the students exactly what they need. It focuses only on their weaknesses to help turn these areas into strengths. Once the child masters a level, they move on to the next area that they need to work on. This program helps in the areas of reading, writing, keyboarding skills and keeps me, as a teacher, up to date on the progress that my students are making. Then I know where to focus my time with them as well. Thank you Reading Kingdom A++!!” — Melissa Holyfield, teacher
