Some books, NAP reports, and other newer resources related to science education


I’ll be starting a position in STEM Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, beginning this August. As part of this position, I’ll teach science teaching methods (and science and STEM education research-related) courses. Hearing about the first course I’ll teach sparked me to gather these.

So, this is a loosely-organized collection of some resources–especially some new(er) books and National Academies Press (NAP) reports–related to science teaching and learning. I leave “oldies but goodies”, like Taking Science to School (2007), the Framework for K-12 Science Education (2012), and America’s Lab Report (2006) for example.

As a few notes, while I didn’t add annotation on why they’re included, I think these are all worth (at least my) attention. Also, these are just what I’ve found and am trying to read right now. I am sure there are a number of other great, new resources that I missed–and look forward to finding out about!
