Tips for Alaska Science Teachers

#1 Become a National Science Teacher Association Member –
A great way to stay connected when you work in rural Alaska is to join the National Science Teachers Association. Once you are a member you can join a listserv for every science content are you teach. Yeah, that could be all of them, LOL. One of the best perks is the ability to browse their old journal issues which are full of excellent lesson plans.

#2 Become a member of the Alaska Science Teachers Association
This group sponsors $500 mini-grants for professional development and classroom supplies. All thoughtful proposals get serious consideration

#3 Familiarize yourself with the Science Standards for Alaska and how to restructure your teaching practices to build in three-dimensions and focus on phenomena. The primer in the Educator'sToolbox is a good place to start. And the entire standards document is available in both docx and pdf formats.

#4 Join the AK Science Teacher Listserv- 

#5 Connect with the Alaska Science Teachers Facebook 

#6 Share or search on Twitter using the #akscied or #akphenomena

#7 Check out the lesson plans and resources linked here. More will be added to this list as new resources are shared with ASTA throughout the year. Feel free to email Andrea Pokrzywinski to add more.
