Wednesday, 18 November 2015 15:56

Cabrini Science and Math Teachers Present at LSTA/LATM SeminarCabrini High School’s Science Department faculty were invited to present their work at the LSTA/LATM conference in Baton Rouge.

The joint conference brought together members of the Louisiana Science Teachers Association, LSTA, and the Louisiana Teachers of Math, LATM. The title of the Cabrini presentation was "Science Vocabulary Made Simple." Department members shared vocabulary activities that they do with our students to make science vocabulary easier for them.

“We started simplifying the often difficult terminology of science and math as we realized our students understood the concepts better when the meaning of the terms were readily apparent,” remarked Ann Smart, Science Department Head. “Once we simplified the terminology, the students’ ability to grasp the concepts improved, and their ability to comprehend and build on previous concepts learned.”

The conference was well attended, with over 50 teachers present, including Cabrini alumna, Donna Zehner Frank'84.
