I hope you are enjoying your summer! If you are interested, there are several places where you can immediately take something away or contribute to this site. Check out the discussions under forums - Using Social Media, STEM Education, and Oil Spill Resources. There is a link to our Cool Tools wiki under MSP2 Resources on the main page, too.

Is there anything I can help you with right now?

Welcome to MSP2, Opal.

Since Kim has given you the summary of the MSP2 site and pointed out some of its features, I'll simply say, "Hello, glad to have you on board."

We look forward to seeing you here on the site and hope you'll feel free to jump in, post, comment, question, offer ideas and resources, and initiate conversation.

Hi Opal - Thanks so much for offering to participate. We are trying to plan our fall series of webinars. It would be great to have input on what those webinars should cover. Last year the webinar topics were a hodge podge (not that they weren't good!) - this year we thought we would do series. What do you think? Kim

Hi Opal - Welcome aboard! 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 guide is about Teaching With Tradebooks and includes lessons for science AND math classes..

We have have on the right side of the page our two project blogs - Resources for Math and Science and Connecting News. We also RSS feed the Free Technology for Teachers, Teach Engineering, and Science and Technology NYT blog feeds.

We've chosen our next book club selection - we'll meet online August 11 at 7pm to discuss Hanging Out, Messing Around, Geeking Out - hope you'll join us. Click here for more information.

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
