Become a Curator of NGSS Resources

NSTA is forming a group of experts to identify resources that will help teachers implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These resources will be featured on a new NGSS@NSTA Portal currently under development. Approximately 50 educators will be selected to be a curator and each will focus on a particular topic in the NGSS. Curators will receive free NSTA membership as well as registration and travel expenses to an NSTA conference for specialized professional development on evaluating NGSS resources.

The Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy: Summer Camp for Teachers

Two hundred highly qualified third- through fifth-grade teachers from around the country spent the week of July 21 to 26 attending the 2013 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey. The select group attended the intensive one-week, all-expense-paid professional development program, which was started by pro golfer Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy. The Mickelsons work with ExxonMobil to create this special learning environment for teachers, and they are joined by math and science experts from the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions, who teach the teachers at the Academy. Read about their incredible week and consider participating in next year’s academy.

Summer Reading List From NSTA

The summer months offer you an opportunity to catch your breath before the school year starts up again. We know teachers don't really get the summer off. Many are spending the pause between academic years focusing on professional development, attending workshops, planning or revamping lessons, and reading the resources saved up for "when there's time." Whether the rest of the summer takes you on the road or only as far as your favorite armchair, we hope you enjoy these suggestions for summer reading from NSTA Press.
