MaKinster, James; Trautmann, Nancy; Burch, Carol; Watkins, Michelle – Science Teacher, 2015
Species richness, migration, habitats, ecological niches, adaptations: Concepts such as these come alive when students explore and analyze landscapes, environmental characteristics, and related biological features represented on digital maps. Most students are familiar with navigation tools integrated into smartphone apps but may be surprised to…

Altman, Roberta, Ed.; Stires, Susan, Ed.; Weseen, Susan, Ed. – Bank Street College of Education, 2015
Each of the papers in this collection offers a much-needed antidote to the forces that disconnect educators from the places in which they teach, learn, and live. Together, they provide an opportunity to reflect on the power of place in education. This issue offers an opportunity--an invitation--to embrace all that the places both in and outside…

Thomas, Alyssa C.; Boucher, Michelle A.; Pulliam, Curtis R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
Our Introduction to Research Methods course is a first-year majors course built around the idea of helping students learn to work like chemists, write like chemists, and think like chemists. We have developed this course as a hybrid hands-on/ lecture experience built around instrumentation use and report preparation. We take the product from one…

Cui, Weili; Jones, Wayne E., Jr.; Klotzkin, David; Myers, Greta L.; Wagoner, Shawn; White, Bruce – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2015
Microfabrication is a critical area to many branches of science and engineering. However, to many students accustomed to seeing transistors as things that come in a lab kit, it is an obscure subtopic of their discipline. Beginning in 2009, the authors undertook a broad multidisciplinary approach to bring microfabrication into all aspects of the…

Turrin, Margie – Science Teacher, 2015
Data and data analysis are central to science and the complex world in which people live. Students need to practice working with data--addressed in the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS Lead States 2013)--starting with small, self-collected data sets and moving on to larger, remotely collected data assemblages. Small data sets…

Adams, Jennifer D.; Gupta, Preeti; Cotumaccio, Alix – Afterschool Matters, 2014
Out-of-school time (OST) science programs, such as the Lang Science Program, play an important role in influencing the trajectory of science learning for many young people. OST programs are especially important for students from groups underrepresented in science, who, more often than not, attend schools with inadequate science education…
