I am working on becoming a Middle School Science teacher, and this is a collection of resources I've found throughout my college year, as well as my interactions with other teachers. I hope this tree will be useful for whatever you are researching!

Molecule of the Month

This is one of the longest running chemistry webpages on the internet. Each month since January 1996 a new molecule has been added to the list on this page. The links will take you to a page at one of the Web sites at a University Chemistry Department or commercial site in the UK, the US, or anywhere in the world, where useful (and hopefully entertaining!) , information can be found about a particularly interesting molecule. If you wish to contribute a Molecule of the Month page, just email me the URL and I'll add you to the list at the next opportunity. What do I need to see the pages properly? See here for all the details of software and helper files you require.

Academic Language - Science

Academic language differs in structure and vocabulary from language used in daily social interactions. Academic language includes a (1) common vocabulary used in all disciplines, as well as a (2) technical vocabulary inherent to each individual discipline. Academic English is based more upon Latin and Greek roots than is common spoken English. In addition, academic language features more complex language and precise syntax than common English. Low academic language skills are associated with low performance in school. Science Interactive Simulations. Environment - Teaching CLIL. Greenhouse Effect and Solid Waste.

Fotos tretes de:,,,,,, Secondary School: Institut Sabadell in collaboration with the UAB (Màster en Formació del Professorat de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona ).Teachers: Carles Moltó (Authorship), Almudena Herrera i Carlos Bardají (Student teachers).Coordinator: Elisabeth Eixarch (2010). We present here a CLIL(Content and Language Integrated Learning) unit of Science in English designed for students of 3rd level of ESO (Secondary Education).

It is organized in four sections: Check each section and get the student's material, a teacher guide and all the information needed in order to share the contents with your students. This unit is designed for 3rd of ESO students in Catalonia. The Unit is developed in ten sessions of fifty minutes, each one with a specific purpose.

Sixth grade science can be a challenging subject, since most study of middle school science at this level requires much concentration and effort.

Sixth Grade Science Vocabulary

VocabularySpellingCity makes studying sixth grade science easier by providing extensive targeted middle school science word lists. Studying science vocabulary to gain subject mastery provides undeniable benefits. Students can review and study troublesome vocabulary terms to enhance their understanding of the sixth grade science curriculum. The repetition embedded in the practice and quizzes for the words will make any student comfortable with more complex terms. This is because the definitions are straightforward and provide an essential foundation upon which students can understand the connectivity of the words.

There are many ways to use these comprehensive sixth grade science word lists, whether through the summaries or full-length lists. Ecology.

Three Little Pigs Construction Company. Chapter 4, Ethics in the Science Classroom. Case Studies The teaching of ethics is particularly suited to the use of illustrative case studies.

Chapter 4, Ethics in the Science Classroom

Such narratives can be used to present examples of a range of significant ethical issues related to some human enterprise and many of the complexities associated with each of the issues. The cases can be either fictional or they can be based on actual events. In our Summer Institute instructional program we used a series of real-life case studies to illustrate several of the key ethical issues related to science. The teachers found these cases helpful in enhancing their in-depth understanding of the issue and in suggesting practical topics for the development of classroom ethics lessons. In this chapter we present six such case studies, including five that were used, to good effect, during our Summer Institute instructional program.
