Science in Kindergarten: What Does It Look like, Sounds like? | Posted in Early Childhood

I know there is lots of good science instruction happening in Kindergarten classes everywhere. I am hoping that some of you will share some of your planned lessons or lessons you want to make more NGSS like. New lessons ideas might be sparked! Ideas might be built upon. What books do you use to begin science investigations? What science investigations lead to writing? Lots of opportunities. :-) Kathy

Assigning Homework | Posted in New Teachers

From my experience in my field placements, I am realizing that parents often do help the children complete their homework quite a bit. Or students do not complete their homework at all and then are punished for not completing it. As a student, I dislike having homework that my teachers do not take for a grade. Throughout my placements, teachers do not give any points for homework, they just clip down. I do not believe that motivates students to complete homework. My personal opinion is that we should not give students packets of homework to students to complete at home. They do a lot of work throughout the day, the last thing they need is to go home and spend hours on homework.

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!
