Review by: Shara Richards on April 30, 2015 :
Dr. Constance Meadors is absolutely brilliant. Her ways of conveying knowledge on very difficult concepts to grasp helps her students grab hold of this knowledge firmly so that they can succeed in understanding science. Her extremely relatable valuable techniques are tools that help solidifies scientific principles that are key in proceeding to learn. I took a physical science class last year and the whole time it felt like the guy was speaking a foreign language to me. Her teaching method was a total translation of the unfamiliar into a language I am comfortable speaking. Dr. Meadors artistic eye helps transfer her vast knowledge of science into layman’s terms that I could completely comprehend and apply to my understanding of science. Her clever methods in breaking down barriers to understanding science helps open up a whole new world of possibilities for those seeking educations. The Know Understand Relate Apply system have gained me skills in being confident in sharing the understanding I have of these scientific principles. I know that I am sharing this wisdom with my son who is in middle school and this is helping him in his classes too. Her expertise at linking, communicating, and distributing different levels of scientific materials is a great help to any person seeking knowledge of science.

Review by: Rokeeta on Feb. 12, 2015 :
This is a great approach to learning. It will help stimulate minds of all ages especially youth to have a focus on science, math, engineering, and technology. This would be a great implementation to all school curriculums starting in the elementary realm and continuing through junior high and high school. This would thus prepare them for further education in an institution of higher learning hopefully majoring in one of the above mentioned areas.
