Hope you join us online this Thursday, 1/13 at 4pm EST as we explore how reader's theater can be used to improve comprehension of informational text and help students learn science concepts. We'll focus on science-themed text, but the same principles can apply to other content areas as well. You can find the link to participate, the descriptions, and archived recordings of all the webinars at http://wiki.nsdl.org/index.php/BeyondPenguins/Seminars
I hope you are enjoying your summer! If you are interested, there are several places where you can immediately take something away or contribute to this site. Check out the discussions under forums - Using Social Media, STEM Education, and Oil Spill Resources. There is a link to our Cool Tools wiki under MSP2 Resources on the main page, too.

Hi Karen - So glad you joined. I see you are from Columbus - MSP2 is a project at Ohio State - so we are neighbors! We are using this NING network as a place where educators can connect with each other (through answers to profile questions and the advanced Members search) and also as a way to connect educators with exemplary resources and professional development opportunities.
If you look on the Main page - you'll see MSP2 resources in the upper left hand box - we have resource guides where we have sifted and sorted and contextualized resources on topics important to middle school math and science teachers, an archive of all of our past webinars, the ability to search the MSP2 collection, and pages of teacher and student opportunities and grants. Our newest resource guide is about Teaching With Tradebooks and includes lessons for science AND math classes.
We also have another project - Beyond Penguins and Polara Bears: Integrating Literacy and Science in K-5 Classrooms (http://beyondpenguins.nsdl.org) that you might be intererested in.
Please don't hesitate to post a question or comment. We are always looking for feedback and new ideas for PD opportunities and people who would like to present. As a curriculum coordinator I'm sure you have lots of ideas. Welcome aboard - Kim
