The Road to Scientific Literacy: How Target Inquiry Is Improving Instruction and Student Achievement in High School Chemistry

Unfortunately until now I have not found a program like this for chemistry. The reason I am so excited about the program is that, even though I believe in inquiry-based learning, adopting it in the chemistry classroom has been difficult for me.... I was never taught how to teach chemistry in an inquiry-based atmosphere.... No teacher is an island. This master’s program will not only help the teachers that go through the program but as the word spreads about the units that are developed, more and more chemistry teachers will start using inquiry-based learning.

About Me (Bio): 
Kreshnik Begolli is a 4th year PhD. Student in the Department of Education at the University of California, Irvine. He is primarily interested in how cognitive science research can help make improvements in education. Kreshnik studies paradigms in analogical reasoning, language acquisition, and perceptual learning in an effort to better understand the way we abstract complex patterns from our environment and reason inductively. As a complement to this line of research, Kreshnik is also interested in uncovering and developing optimal learning schedules in the hopes of creating learning environments that are adaptive to each learner's style. This inquiry led him to pursue his B.S. degree in Cognitive Science at UCLA, where he graduated with Departmental and Collegial Honors, A Specialization in Computing, and a Minor in Linguistics.

About Me (Bio): 
It is my belief that a successful leader has the ability to influence and inspire various individuals, while never losing sight of their mission or vision. Currently I teach k-12 ELL biology as well as an introductory biology course at Suny Rockland Community college; however my experience also includes a background in nursing services. I look forward to joining the CADRE fellowship, thereby assisting in the improvement of classroom practices for English Language learners.
