Science in the Classroom

Science in the Classroom | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

description by The Scout Report

 

"Science in the Classroom is an excellent resource for high school teachers and university professors who want to integrate the latest breaking research into their lesson plans. The project consists of a team of editors from the world-renowned journal Science, who work with an advisory board of scientists and science teachers to produce content designed for the classroom. On the site, readers may click on either High School or University to choose their target audience. Topics may be divided into Physical or Biological sciences (or choose "Any" to peruse all articles). Click on an article to read the editor's introduction and annotations. Discussion questions are listed throughout. In addition, each article is accompanied by Activities and Teaching Resources, which can be downloaded as PDF files."
