I was recently reading the March/April 2023 issue of “Science Scope” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the “Practical Research” column, written by Alison Betz Seymour. She wrote an article entitled, ““But, I’m Not Done Yet!” Time Management in the Science Classroom.”
Here are some practical, simple suggestions to develop time management skills:
1. Explicitly talk about time management.
2. Prompts such as “Check in with your time, there are about 10 minutes left for this task.”
3. Scaffold students’ ability to visualize time by using an analog clock with time intervals marked with dry-erase pens.
