Pearlman, Melanie – Science Teacher, 2019
Spices, of course, do not make a meal, but they make a meal more enjoyable and memorable. Games do the same, allowing teachers to interact with their students in a different way than they normally do. They also have the potential to challenge and assess students' understanding of content. Games allow teachers to "play" with their…

Soto, Inia; Cambazoglu, Mustafa Kenal; Arnone, Robert; Kastler, Jessica; Parra, Sabrina – Science Teacher, 2018
Cruise planning may seem like an ordinary task for oceanographers, but it actually involves logical and strategic thinking, collaboration, and multidisciplinary work. The "Challenger" expedition, led by Charles Wyville Thomson from 1872 to 1876, was the first to be fully dedicated to understanding oceans (Rice et al. 1999) and was…

Moeller, Kara; Friedman, Mark – Science Teacher, 2018
Evolution can be a difficult concept for students, even though it is an organizing principle in biology. It can also be a challenge for teachers to cover evolution properly (or at all) in the classroom, whether due to personal attitudes or lack of knowledge or confidence in the material (Rutledge and Mitchell 2002). Even in some states where…

Tokosh, Joe – Geography Teacher, 2017
Teaching approaches in economic geography traditionally cover the effects of deindustrialization on the landscape but offer less insight into the development of services as a prominent sector, because of the longer histories of manufacturing and industrial economies (Moore and Hunt 2016). Incorporating services into economic geography curricula…
