Welcome Bianca,   I first place that I would go is "Cool Tools" under MSP2 Resources on the homepage.  Wonderful tools for the classroom- most (if not all) are free!!   Take Care, Tom

Hi Binca - Welcome aboard! I wanted to tell you a little about MSP2 - 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 guides are <a href="http://wiki.nsdl.org/index.php/MiddleSchoolPortal/Teaching_With_Trade_Books" target="_blank">Teaching With Trade Books</a> which includes lessons for science AND math classes and <a href="http://wiki.nsdl.org/index.php/MSP:MiddleSchoolPortal/Misconceptions_at_the_Middle" target="_blank">Science Misconceptions</a>.

We've got some great upcoming events - check them out in the <a href="Events" _mce_href="http://www.msteacher2.org/events/getting-the-most-out-of-your">Events">http://www.msteacher2.org/events/getting-the-most-out-of-your">Events section</a>. We also have a bookclub group - our next book to read is Finding Mrs. Warnecke. You can find all the groups on the Main page.

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.
 
So glad you joined - Kim
