The National Science Teachers Association ( NSTA) and the Science Teachers Association of New York State ( STANYS) are publishing a book called “Science Literacy & Our Nation’s Future”. This is an important project that will guide elementary teachers in the use of the Next Generation Science Standards scheduled to be released at the end of this year.
The contributors that are writing chapters and essays for the book include; the Secretary of Education, the Secretary of Energy, several Nobel Prize winners and prominent scientists and educators. There is a chapter devoted to grades K- 5 sample lessons and we would like to invite KSTA members to participate in submitting ideas for our K-5 sample lessons.
Would you be kind enough to reach out to your members and direct them to the website www.scienceliteracystandards.org that is dedicated to obtaining input from teachers.
Below is an example of an invitation that was sent to STANYS members encouraging them to participate in writing lessons for the NSTA Press/ STANYS book, “Science Literacy & Our Nation’s Future”.
