The most important thing I learned was where to find the research upon which students' science misconceptions are based. As part of our teacher evaluation process, we are required to anticipate student misconceptions in our lesson planning. The only way I felt I could do this was to anticipate the misconceptions to which I had been exposed in the classroom. Now I realize how narrow my focus was in this area. I didn't realize the number of resources avaible to help me to identify science misconceptions in different areas. This will be invaluable to me in my role as a consulting teacher and teacher evaluator. I plan to invest in the resources that are not available online. Thank you. ---Lillian Sims
