Edublog World, please welcome Anthony Cody to the ranks! This thoughtful science educator, who leads teaching innovations in the Oakland CA public schools, is great on policy and great on practice. His first (two-part) contribution to Edutopia’s Spiral Notebook group blog, “Creative Play and Scientific Inquiry: Preparing Kids for More Than Just a Test,” touches on several of his favorite themes: hands-on, inquiry-based learning; the linkage between high stakes testing and anemic teaching practice; and the sheer joy of teaching in ways that excite and engage kids.

You can read more of Anthony’s practice-oriented writing in two of our most popular TLN essays at the Teacher Magazinewebsite: Students Can Do Hard Things and Students Behave When Teachers Engage.
