Good Thinking! The Science Of Teaching Science
The Smithsonian Science Education Center has partnered with FableVision Studios on "Good Thinking! The Science of Teaching Science," a new, original web series and professional development resource for science educators. Too often, valuable knowledge sits unused in inaccessible journals; Good Thinking! delves into the research to share the best ideas and practices with teachers in a fun, accessible way. Good Thinking! is able to reach teachers with targeted information to support their practices.
