NSTA Name Change Discussion | Posted in NSTA New Name

Welcome!  Thank you for joining your fellow NSTA members in this discussion forum. 

This morning in St. Louis, I will make the announcement that the NSTA Board of Directors recommended that we change our association name from the National Science Teachers Association to the National Science Teaching Association. Background information about this decision and the voting process is available here and in the upcoming issue of NSTA Reports.

I look forward to your comments, thoughtful reflection, and response to this recommendation and hope that in the end, you will join us by casting your vote for Science Teaching!

Implementing STEM in my classroom | Posted in STEM

Hello Leslie! I'm also currently working with kindergarteners for my student teaching. I think that one easy way to implement STEM in a classroom would be to start off small by using the kind of language you would hear in a science classroom. Using vocabulary such as "experiment, predict, and observation" are just small ways you could implement STEM. Additionally, you could think about the kinds of lessons that you are presenting to your students. You could think about which of your lessons could be presented as a problem or a question that students can explore. By doing this, your curious, little learners can think about problem solving and research.

Gardening at school with young children | Posted in Early Childhood

Peggy, I think you should do it in the spring considering that they have moved into a new location, meaning give it some time for them to settle in to their new environment. Regardless, doing it during the spring time will help the plants grow at a faster pace than any other season as during the spring, it isn't raining too much or it isn't too hot like the summer. I honestly find the gardening idea to be fascinating to both the students and the instructors as it shows students what living things like flowers, need in order to survive. Pamela
