Tue, Oct 01, 2019 8:06 PM in Cultivating Science Teacher Leaders
It is evident that teacher leaders are key, especially when there are systematic changes in education. We need teacher leaders to share their experience, resources, be models, be coaches, help teachers to develop lesson plans, provide feedback and more. With that said, I am currently looking for articles on developing SCIENCE teacher leaders, but am finding little to no luck. Do...

Hi Ms. Wolfe,
Thank you so much for your response. I will definitely check out these resources. Looking at videos aligned to NGSS will be a great start, as I am working to help coaches and teachers identify the science and engineering practices within a lesson. Thank you again for sharing.

I am looking for science teaching exemplar videos. Actual videos of teachers teachings so that a group of teachers can watch the video and have a discussion about best practices viewed, culture of the classroom, student discourse and more.

Supporting Newly Hired Science Teachers

I think this article hit on a key point that is close to me. new science teachers need to collaborate with other veteran science teachers and science advisors in their district or outside the district. I think that is why I like the NSTA Learning Center so much because new science teachers can collaborate with other science teachers from around the U.S. New science teachers not only need resources but they need someone to follow up on them and provide essential feedback that they can use to help grow them. This is a great article.
The Early Years: The Nature of Science in Early Childhood

I really like this activity. I use the Picture Perfect Science Lesson, Earthlets that also focuses on observation and inferences. I think pairing this activity with that lesson would be a great introduction.
