MSP2 wants to create opportunities for teachers to collaborate locally or globally and form PLCs around science and mathematics. This group provides educators with a forum to create student collaboration projects around STEM concepts.
Just wanted to let you know that I have been reading this exchange and find it interesting. Unfortunately, I have so little technology in my room that I have found it difficult to participate. Thanks,
I'm interested in setting up this kind of collaboration. I'm a 6th grade teacher in Idaho. In our district we are asked to work on weather projects in January/February. I'll start looking into recruiting a local meteorologist too.
Thanks for the suggestions! I put in an order for white boards, and I'm going to try a three-ring circus next week. Also, the citizenship grading idea is helping me think outside the box.
I appreciate your time.
Thanks for the link to your VoiceThread! It was very helpful because it gave me a way to visualize what a differentiated math unit would look like. We hear a lot about differentiation, but we haven't had any training, modeling, or examples.…
Are you looking only to differentiate in terms of readiness or would you also like to include learner profile and interest. This year I've been making a real effort to differentiate more by both learner profile and interest and finding t…
Good Morning Angela
We adopted a new curriculum this year that has various worksheets available addressing Universal Access. My suggestion is to take a look at your curriculum and see what you can use from there. Also, I use white boards every day i…

I teach 6th grade science. We have a unit on water/weather. I am hoping to differentiate that unit this year. Maybe something about the polar regions can be included in the differentiation.
Angela - Let me second Mary's welcome! So glad to see that you joined! Let me give you quick overview of the site - on the main page - the resources that we have developed are on the left - MSP2 Resources box and our blogs. We have lots of events - technology, content, and pedagogy. The archived recordings of the ones we've done so far are in the link - Webinar Archive in the MSP2 Resources box. And we have lots of groups!
It would be great if you go back into your profile and answer two additional questions that we just added - I need help with and I can help with. We want people to be able to search by those parameters.
In addition, we've just started a book club - the fall book is Omnivore's Dilemma - it would be great if you joined in. Welcome! Kim
Welcome to MSP2. We're glad you've joined us, and delighted that you've engaged in one of the conversations already!
I see that you're a math and science teacher. Do you teach in separate math and science classes, or are math and science taught as aspects of an integrated curriculum in your school?
If you haven't had a chance, check out the math and science resource guides. These are quality, standards-based teaching resources either written or collected by expert math and science educators. These guides are also wikis so that the community can contribute and grow the guides.
Welcome to the MSP2 community! So glad you've joined us.
Have you had a chance to explore the site, yet? You'll find lesson ideas, digital resources for classroom use, and connections to current news items. Look at the left side of the Main page and you'll find Math and Science Resource Guides, Diigo lists, and project blogs to name just a few.
We've had several Tech Talks recently - on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link. You can also see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab.
We're also soon to be adding resources for youth - a series of virtual learning experiences for students. So plenty more to come!
Please send any ideas or feedback you have our way, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
