Stilwell, Matthew D.; Yao, Chunhua; Vajko, Dale; Jeffery, Kelly; Powell, Douglas; Wang, Xudong; Gillian-Daniel, Anne Lynn – Science Teacher, 2021
What if "every breath you take, every move you make" (Sting 1983) could be harnessed to produce renewable energy? Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) are state-of-the-art devices researchers are studying to do just that--convert kinetic energy into electrical energy at the source (Saurabh Rathore 2018). This type of electrical energy is…

Cizmas, Emily – Science Teacher, 2021
Ecosystems, interacting systems of biotic and abiotic factors, are a fascinating topic in life science. The "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS Lead States 2013) recognize "Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics" (HS-LS2) as one of four overarching ideas in life science that students should understand. Student…

Nasr, Nancy – Science Teacher, 2021
America's current student demographics reflect greater diversity than ever before. With the increased enrollment of Black and Latinx students in American schools (NCES 2019), the importance of providing science students with classroom experiences embracing diversity is greater than ever. Experiences that spark an interest in Science, technology,…

Rosenburg, Joshua; Edwards, Alex; Chen, Bodong – Science Teacher, 2020
Analyzing and interpreting data is essential to the practice of scientists and is also an essential science and engineering practice for science teaching and learning. Although working with data has benefits for student learning, it is also challenging, particularly with respect to aspects of work with data that are not yet very common in schools,…

Boerner-Mercier, Jaron; Gray, Ron – Science Teacher, 2020
Land ethics are the ways that humanity justifies their usage of the land. Today this topic is more important than ever as we balance our needs, such as food, water, and energy, with the systems of the natural world. The activity described in this article introduces students to the concept of land ethics using historical case studies of five common…

Wolfson, Jane; Stapleton, Mary; Sezen-Barrie, Asli – Science Teacher, 2020
Ocean acidification (OA) has been called climate change's evil twin for a reason. Increased levels of carbon dioxide, caused by humans burning fossil fuels, are not only causing a rise in global temperature but are also having adverse impacts on marine ecosystems. In the lesson presented in this article, students conduct investigations using…

Zucker, Andrew; Noyce, Pendred; McCullough, Andrew – Science Teacher, 2020
The United States is currently experiencing its most severe measles outbreak in decades, driven in part by parents' belief that vaccines cause autism. That harmful misinformation is contrary to scientific evidence (DeStefano et al. 2013). The CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest multidisciplinary…

Mattox, Stephen; Ketelaar, Jessica; Vanderwel, Robin – Science Teacher, 2020
The unequal distribution of natural resources is the direct result of past geologic processes. Once a promising region is located, geologists use a variety of techniques to find the materials and energy that society consumes. Their tools can be as simple as a hand lens or as sophisticated as a satellite. Along the way, exploration geologists and…

White, Jacob; Means, John A.; Hall, Tim; Shockley, Denise – Science Teacher, 2020
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a family of synthetic chemicals consisting of carbon, hydrogen, and chlorine atoms. PCBs have been produced commercially since 1929 in hundreds of industrial applications. Their continued production in the United States was phased out in the late 1970s, and strict disposal guidelines were regulated as adverse…

Fine, Caitlin Gailey McClearyCale; Furtak, Erin Marie – Science Teacher, 2020
American classrooms are increasingly heterogeneous linguistically. If all students are to engage in three-dimensional learning, how are educators making classroom assessments accessible and meaningful for emergent bilingual learners? There are few classroom assessment exemplars that embody the NGSS three-dimensional vision of the…

Grasty, Sarah – Science Teacher, 2020
Fisheries scientists make sure that fish populations ("fisheries") are managed properly, neither over- or under-utilized, to maintain long-term economic and ecological stability. Scientists collect data and conduct surveys to determine fish populations, and then make recommendations about how many fish may be caught by commercial and…

Hagan, Wendy L.; Whitcraft, Christine; Henriques, Laura – Science Teacher, 2020
Bringing scientific research into the classroom is often a goal of science teachers. The notion of having students engaged in authentic practices of science underlies the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS) and is foundational to the "Framework for K-12 Science Education." The overarching goal of scientist-teacher…

Fowler, Kelsie; Windschitl, Mark; Auning, Claus – Science Teacher, 2020
Each year, an increasing number of science teachers integrate modeling into their instructional repertoires, and in the process, they see how this disciplinary practice helps students reason and revise their thinking about complex events in the natural world. The NGSS Science and Engineering Practice of developing and using models is intended to…
