NSTA as Textbook wPreservice Teachers Instructors Stories - Atlanta 2023

Show Details

University/college instructors at several institutions in the US and Canada are using NSTA resources in lieu of a textbook when teaching preservice teachers. Participants will meet some of these instructors and learn how they integrate NSTA resources in their courses and the benefits of the program. Preservice teachers using NSTA create a library of resources, grow their network of professional colleagues, and enhance their content and pedagogical knowledge of science. Instructors receive a class landing page to manage their course and a private forum for asynchronous discussions. They also gain access to an administrator's dashboard to monitor and assess their students' engagement within the NSTA website. All instructors receive a free NSTA membership. Students can become members of the Association through graduation and add to the website's library all of NSTA’s Interactive E-Books+ Professional, professional learning units, and other fee-based resources to use in class and beyond.

Are you a secondary teacher looking for resources for your classroom? Join this team of educators in sharing their experiences of tools and routines designed to support students' sensemaking.

Students Teaching Students
Students can learn so much by teaching each other. Give them a challenging conceptual question that they can debate after choosing initial answers (with cards or free software). Ask the question again when debate is done, and students will likely have all arrived at the correct answer!

Integrating Anchor Phenomena as Engagement and Assessment
Phenomena are an essential element to science teaching. But, we often do not refer back to them in our unit! Come see how a biology and chemistry teacher not only use them as anchors, but also incorporate them as part of an end of unit assessment!

Urban Science Education Resources and Assets to Build Networks

STRAND: Tools and Routines to Support Sensemaking

Show Details

Integration of the critical aspects of the three dimensions in NGSS is meant to drive and equip teachers to promote real science in students’ daily lives. These pillars of the three-dimensional learning delineated in each standard of the NGSS provide effective strategies that address important focus areas that positively impact Urban Science Education. How can we ensure that quality science education is being promoted in all school settings, especially urban ones? An asset-based pedagogical approach focuses on the strengths, interests, and connections to students’ prior knowledge in a culturally responsive way. Science educators constantly seek resources and strategies to promote successful science education. Challenges that are faced in urban educational settings such as overcrowding, limited resources, and equity in the distribution of the resources have negatively impacted science education directly. In many cases, urban science teachers constantly engage in the mitigation of these
