Hi Shelly - Welcome aboard! Really looking forward to working with you on the TACCC project. Please go to the Groups section join the TACCC group and introduce yourself. You should be able to join but I'll make sure I invite you right now just in case.
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 Teaching With Trade Books which includes lessons for science AND math classes and Science Misconceptions.
Please don't hesitate to post a question or comment on a discussion or blog post. We are always looking for feedback and new ideas for PD opportunities and people who would like to present.
