Supporting Excellent Science Teaching for Georgia

GSTA publishes the eObservations newsletter 11 times per year to provide our members and other science educators with a range of information that supports excellent science education for all students in our state.  In each issue, you will find classroom resources recommended by GSTA board members, announcements of upcoming programs for teachers and students, research- and practice-based articles that present best practices for science teaching, and important news items that are relevant to Georgia's science educators.  Most articles come from our board of directors or invited experts, but we also welcome our members to submit articles and announcements for publication.  Visit the links below to view or learn more about eObservations.

      • Implementing the Science GSE - This series is intended to build teachers' capacity for the new Science Georgia Standards of Excellence and to increase their understanding of the Framework for K-12 Science Education by highlighting model classroom lessons that support students in three-dimensional science learning. Articles should describe lessons that challenge students to integrate core ides, science & engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts to explain phenomena or solve problems.
      • Connecting Research & Best Practice - This series is intended to help teachers incorporate research-based best practices into their science and STEM classrooms. Articles should focus on curriculum, instructional, or assessment approaches that are demonstrated to support science learning within the context of Georgia's student assessment and teacher evaluation systems. Each article should provide relevant background information and practical guidance for classroom implementation.
      • Speaking Up for Science EducationThis series offers a space for GSTA members to share their perspectives on key issues facing science education in our state and nation.
