Spring/Summer 2012 – Creating Quality Science Programs
Across the United States, our education system is being impacted by the loss of financial support. The funding for many educational programs is often decreased or cut to save money. How do educators maintain quality science instruction on limited resources? What is quality science instruction? Are you successful in creating quality science programs without the high dollar ticket price? Have you found ways to implement quality science programs that can be replicated easily on a shoestring budget? How have you changed the way you teach science to adjust to the financial limitations of today? Maybe some of you have not experienced programs being cut, so how did you continue to produce quality programs? What defines a quality science program and how do we measure it? In this journal, we seek articles de-scribing how educators create or maintain quality science programs.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2012. Additionally, we are always accepting submissions outside the current call.
Guidelines for submission can be downloaded here.
