Garrison Hall teaches science to third- and fifth-graders at Taylors Elementary School in Taylors. "Soon the windows of our classrooms will open onto the world," says Mr. Hall of his current effort to install school-wide Internet access. The audiovisually integrated curriculum Mr. Hall developed for his students is also the subject of the university course he teaches on the uses of educational T.V. technologies in the classroom. A strong belief in activity-based elementary science instruction was behind Mr. Hall's creation of a science lab that today serves as a state model. When Mr. Hall is not constructing 100-foot models of whales or decoding the physics of martial arts, he teaches in several area graduate education programs and frequently participates in professional development institutes. The National Science Teaching Association recognized Mr. Hall with a 1995 National Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching.
