TTST coverhe Science Teacher

This edition marks our 19th consecutive spring issue devoted to “Science for All.” This annual theme is an umbrella for ideas and strategies to narrow the academic achievement gaps associated with ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, physical disabilities, limited English-language proficiency, and learning differences. This goes right to the core of NSTA’s mission, “to promote excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all.” Over the years,The Science Teacher (TST) has published well over 100 articles on the “Science for All” theme. Whether your interest is in diversity education, multicultural awareness, equity issues, teaching ELLs, or simply finding engaging teaching methods for all students, browse the TST online archive for a trove of related articles.

 JCST coverJournal of College Science Teaching

In the Two-Year Community column read about a study that evaluates the effectiveness of human anatomy imaging software in both face-to-face and online anatomy and physiology laboratory classes attended by community college students. Also, see the Case Study that is loosely based on the 1982 Chicago Tylenol murders and is designed to help students understand the difficult concept of cellular respiration. And don’t miss the Research and Teaching article that explores the use of Photovoice, an approach that incorporates the power of imagery and narrative to convey the perspectives of participants, as a student-centered learning activity in an introductory chemistry course.

    We’re so honored to be featured in the April/May issue (with OBSERVE, EXPLAIN, CONNECT). As NSTA members who are NOT science teachers, we strive to make connections across the curriculum and we believe passionately about the power of sharing POETRY in SCIENCE. We hope you agree!
