Resources for Science Literacy: Professional Development


In response to requests from members of the science education community, Project 2061 has made its publication Resources for Science Literacy: Professional Development (RSL: PD) available online. RSL: PD offers a carefully selected collection of workshop activities, research, science trade books, analyses, and course plans designed to provide educators with a deeper understanding of how to help their students achieve science literacy. It also includes valuable comparisons between Benchmarks for Science Literacy and the National Science Education Standards, so that materials that have been aligned to one set of learning goals may be more easily investigated for their alignment to the other.
These resources can be used by higher education faculty in planning pre-service teacher education, by school districts in designing in-service staff development programs, and by teachers for self-guided study of the learning goals developed by Project 2061.
