since this is a brand new sub I'm still thinking over some submission rules...I'll start with some suggestions and people can provide feedback as you join.
This sub is for science educators or anybody who has a general interest in science education. I think it's pretty straight forward, but here are some suggestions of what should be posted here...
A new resource you've been using in your classroom (maybe a YouTube video or some new assessment and feedback tool that you just have to rave about and share with everyone!!)
New lesson ideas that you'd like to bounce off other science minded peers...because we all know, sometimes your science lessons plans just won't resonate with the history teacher's methods at your school... (Just kidding, history teachers...)
Having difficulty teaching that one concept that students just can't wrap their head around (or multiple, it happens)...Let's hear about it!
Been brushing up on the literature in current science education research, have you? Do tell...
Feel free to branch out from science and embrace all of STEM education
There is a "Golden Rule" of sorts, if you will:
This should remain a POSITIVE environment. Friendly argumentation is, of course, encouraged. However, this isn't a place to complain about students or educational policy decisions. If you're going to vent, please let it be the beginning of the PROBLEM SOLVING process, i.e. we can talk about our problems but we must then talk about how to improve the situation.
Educating is an artful and masterful craft, and the hope in creating this sub is that we will all improve our aptitude through networking and discourse
