Hope you join us online this Thursday, 1/13 at 4pm EST as we explore how reader's theater can be used to improve comprehension of informational text and help students learn science concepts. We'll focus on science-themed text, but the same principles can apply to other  content areas as well. You can find the link to participate, the descriptions, and archived recordings of all the webinars at http://wiki.nsdl.org/index.php/BeyondPenguins/Seminars

Hi, Mitzi,

Since Kim has already given you "the tour" of the MSP2 site, I'll simply say, "Welcome. We're glad to have you on board."

We hope you'll find resources and support, and take advantage of the opportunities to share your experience and knowledge.

Looking forward to meeting you Thursday at the "Math and Science in the Wild" workshop,

Hi Mitzi - Welcome aboard! So glad you are participating in the Flip Camera Workshop. We'll be "meeting and sharing" in the Math and Science in the Wild Group but hope you'll become active in the bigger MSP2 community.

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 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
