Inglewood Lauds Its Achievements
in Science Fair and City Affairs
By Haleemon Anderson
Last week’s meeting of the Inglewood City
Council brought a decidedly upbeat tenor,
with comments extolling the recent State of
the City address as well as a visit from the
community’s finest young residents.
The meeting began with a presentation
to the winners of the science fair at Claude
Hudnall Elementary. Science Explosion, a
week of activities and competitions, was cosponsored
by Councilmember Eloy Morales
of District 3.
The Council presented a special commendation
to the school. Morales, reading from
the document, thanked Principal Dawnyell
Goolsby and her staff “for establishing a
science fair that promotes science education
and grew to include participation from the
entire Inglewood Unified School District.”
Morales commended the program for
encouraging students to “collaborate, communicate
and develop critical problem-solving
and thinking skills.”
Mayor James T. Butts noted the science
projects must utilize the scientific method
and test students’ theories. “In the new era of
California common core standards and next
generation science standards, it’s important
we provide your students the opportunity to
implement these practices,” said Butts.
Dr. Goolsby thanked Morales for his
support and encouraged the community to
continue to support district schools, saying
the students “are phenomenal.”
The Council presented trophies to first,
second and third place winners in the participating
grades and gathered an impromptu
photo shoot with the gaggle of budding scientists.
The list of winners were as follows:
Grade 1: Lia Galo (1st place), Leeah
Combest (2nd place) and Nathan Nolasco
Grade 2: Amanda Okere (1st), Camilla
Naranjo-Casique (2nd) and Estrella Thompson
Grade 3: Angel Negrete (1st), Ximena
Sandoval (2nd) and Bijon Mejia (3rd).
Grade 4: Brissia Hernandez (1st), Jennifer
Hall (2nd) and Kaithlyn Hernandez (3rd).
Grade 5: Ari Cooke (1st), Ayub Yonis (2nd)
and Truth Anyanwu-Good (3rd).

Wiseburn Board Looks at CGI
Learning in Math at Burnett
By Duane Plank
Last Thursday evening the assembled
members of the Wiseburn School Board
gathered to view a special presentation helmed
by Kim Jones, the principal at Peter Burnett
Elementary. Captioned “Collaboration and
Outreach to Support Learning in Mathematics,”
the 25-minute presentation also highlighted the
largesse of the Wiseburn Education Foundation
(WEF) in supporting funding for Wiseburn
Unified School District programs.
Jones and her Burnett team of presenters,
including special education teacher Madison
Scar, fifth grade teacher Trisha Maano, and fifth
grader and student council president Isabella
Farrokh-Siar, talked about the utilization of
Cognitive Guided Instruction (CGI) in the field
of mathematics, and how its tenets dovetail
with districtwide goals and standards.
CGI, a recent phenomenon in the instructional
toolbox in education, aims to bolster a studentcentered
approach to teaching math -- building
on what students already know -- and expand
their intuitive approaches to problem-solving.
CGI instruction is based-on listening to students,
answering their inquiries and engaging with
student thinking, with the goal of uncovering
and expanding student understanding.
The presentation delineated the Burnett goals,
including building the capacity to support the
implementation of CGI practices schoolwide;
fostering data-driven formative instruction; and
leveraging the expertise of teacher-on-special
assignment Andrea Kabwasa and content expert
Jones spoke of complementing the usage
of textbooks with new best practices, as well

Citizen Scientists Contribute to Increased
Cognizance of Climate Change
By Tommy Vinh Bui, MLIS, Associate
Librarian, Inglewood Public Library
We just saw the passage of April and the
important commemoration of Earth Day. A
day for raising awareness of urgent issues
facing the fragile blue-green marble we reside
on. And as a Solar System Ambassador, it is
my onus to provide dear Inglewood residents
with some useful information about how you
can be involved and do your part to keep this
planet spinning, pristine, and flourishing for
generations to come.
Who hasn’t wanted to take on the mantle
of citizen scientist and be a tireless advocate
for pressing environmental issues confronting
our planet today? Well, you absolutely can.
And with gusto. The role of citizen scientist is
critical and all-important for NASA. This is an
ideal opportunity for students to take ownership
of the planet they’ll inherit and ensure we as
a society are making prudent and data-driven
policy decisions that will ultimately affect everyone.
It’s both educational and empowering
as the general public becomes involved in the
scientific protocols to record and scrutinize
observations and compile precise measurements
to aid NASA toward innovative and groundbreaking
discoveries. Everyone can help and
do their part by becoming a citizen scientist.
