[Phys-l] article on MODELING INSTRUCTION, in The Science Educator: NSELA journal

Yesterday an eight-page published article about Modeling Instruction was
posted on the NSELA website.

It's very readable; you'll like it.
Consider downloading it and giving it to science and engineering colleagues
who care about high quality, research-informed K-12 instruction.

We will post a link to it, on the modeling website.
Jane Jackson

I quote from that webpage:
The Science Educator is a peer-reviewed journal focusing primarily on K-16
STEM issues. Topics dealing with all aspects of science and engineering
education reform, outreach to schools, and the professional development of
K-16 teachers are welcomed and encouraged.

For 17 years, the Modeling Instruction Program has been
helping teachers attain knowledge and skills needed
to benefit their students. Modeling Instruction is
recognized as an Exemplary K-12 science program
by the U.S. Department of Education.
