NGSNavigators Podcast Encore #5 - Dr. Vince Mancuso


We are again taking a look back at a great conversation on the NGSNavigators Podcast! Today we're featuring our discussion with guest Vince Mancuso, EdD!

Dr. Vince Mancuso joined us on Episode 6 of the podcast to talk about phenomena-driven inquiry and the research behind the POQIE model.

He has been a middle school science teacher for 20 years. His research focuses on discrepant event phenomena in the science classroom and inquiry-based reform, specifically the development of inquiry-grounded curriculum and effective inquiry practices that enrich traditional classrooms.
