Resources for Preparing Pre-service Teachers to Teach the NGSS
To help programs and individual faculty take advantage of this opportunity, we have developed a set of web-based resources, informed by participants in the InTeGrate program as well as by faculty in exemplary teacher preparation programs. Web pages address the program-level task of creating engaging and effective courses for teacher preparation programs, with the goal of introducing education majors to the active pedagogies and geoscience methods they will later use in their own classrooms. Examples of activities, courses, and professional development programs highlight effective methods for integrating content and pedagogy, getting students into the field, and preparing future teachers for the STEM classroom of the future.
