So much happens behind the scenes and behind the books at NSTA Press when we develop new resources for science teachers. I have the enviable job of talking with authors who have ideas for terrific new books, and I have the privilege of hearing from teachers about the types of resources they need for their classrooms and for their own professional development. Sometimes we hear a vignette or two about how NSTA Press books are helping teachers in the challenging work they do. Science teachers inspire children every day to question, explore, investigate, and wonder why. And a new day can bring a science connection or discovery in the news, so there are always opportunities to help students link up their classroom experiences with their lives beyond the science classroom.
We thought we’d share some behind-the-scenes information and tips in this new NSTA Press Books blog. Perhaps we can introduce you to lesson ideas and resources you missed in the whirlwind of data and information that greets all of us daily. Lots of new books are brewing at NSTA Press, so pause to enjoy a beaker mug full of tea or H2O while you take a quick look at some forthcoming February books.
