NSTA TITLES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) is the largest organization in the world committed to promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning. Their members include science teachers, science supervisors, administrators, scientists, business and industry representatives, and others involved in and committed to science education.

NSTA offers a wide range of professional learning opportunities for science educators at all levels, which includes publishing titles that cover every discipline, grade level, and teaching focus.

These PD titles are digitally available on Gale’s eBook platform. With Gale eBooks: Professional Learning, administrators can support the 4 Pillars of Effective PD and provide continuing professional development that’s personalized, job embedded, tied to evaluations, and sustainable. Plus, schools have the option to upgrade their NSTA professional learning collections with alignments to the Danielson Framework for Teaching, the Marzano Focused Teacher Evaluation Model, and others. It all begins by putting thousands of titles from expert authors and publishers, like NSTA, at users’ fingertips.
