Teachers: Want a Nature/Science Subscription For Your Class?
Posted by Dan Satterfield
Oceanographer Robert Grumbine who writes More Grumbine Science is offering to pay for a subscription to Science or Nature for a high school science class, if the teacher will incorporate it into the curriculum. A great way for students to become familiar with cutting edge science. Contact Robert through his blog or on twitter @rgrumbine.
Thanks Dan! I’ve got a taker now, from Orlando, @ragbag01
One comment from a reader that I’ll share — they observed that Science has a free place, http://scienceintheclassroom.org, where Science editors and authors work to provide classroom support materials for selected articles.
Earlier commenter mentioned the importance of having some guidance for teachers on how to use the materials in classroom settings. Comments are still open (will remain open) at my place for ideas. I may start adding some myself.
An article that I’ve already written addresses the language/vocabulary problem of reading advanced science — ‘Science Jabberwocky’ http://moregrumbinescience.blogspot.com/2014/05/a-challenge-and-offer.html
Thanks for the generous offer. I’m very close to finishing certification in 6-12 Earth and Space Science, Environmental Science, and Biology, as well as being equally close to completion of my Master’s in curriculum and Instruction. As a new teacher, any assistance is greatly appreciated. As joyful and rewarding as the career can be, my biggest complaint is the general lack of resources offered to new teachers.
Really Helpful especially for New Teachers.
