With funding from the National Science Foundation, STEM Teaching Tools are short briefs and OER PD modules designed to bring together ideas and resources to address common challenges and opportunities as educators adopt the new vision for science education in the NRC Framework and resulting Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These tools are helping tens of thousands of educators across the country align their teaching with best practices from both research and teaching.
STEM Teaching tools are:
- co-written by researchers and educators
- easily downloadable as PDFs
- updated regularly at stemteachingtools.org, with new briefs created in response to educator needs
- useful content to include in your newsletters, email blasts, and professional learning experiences.
