The Scientific Method in the classroom...
When teaching the Scientific Method in my face to face classes, I rely on a graphic which I first saw on one of my favorite facebook pages - I f#@ing love science. (please excuse the bad word!!)
Do it again and again and again....
One of the most important steps of the scientific method is reporting your findings so the experiment can be replicated and verified. Was there a source of error the scientist wasn't aware of? Was the sample size too small? Were the results just random? Repeating the experiment can confirm or deny the results.
Oops - didn't wait for confirmation!
The Scientific Method was followed. Vaccines are safe!
Please read below to understand why vaccines are safe. Please don't put your child at risk, and please, please don't put the community at risk! Vaccinate your children.

But hopefully, this basic information has been enough to allow you to speak a little more intelligently about the topic at your next debate–especially since one of you will soon be leading our nation. And in the future, if you’re unsure about similarly complicated topics, please feel free to admit your lack of knowledge and defer to the experts. That’s what real leaders do.
Thanks for reading–I’d love to hear your thoughts here or on my Facebook page. Be sure to follow me on Facebook or Twitter for updates about new posts. Look forward to hearing from you. -Chad
