Publication Date



Kaylee Laub talks to us about science education, problem-based learning, student research, and teaching with technology. Kaylee is a secondary science teacher and teacher mentor at Alta Sierra Intermediate School in Clovis, California. Her research investigates secondary students’ sensemaking in science with problem-based learning centered on local community issues, place-based education, science literacy practices, multimodal literacy, and student argumentation on controversial science topics. Ms. Laub holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from California State University, Fresno.

Each week, I invite a top education researcher to sit down and talk with teachers about what they have learned from years of study.
