isn’t student membership $39?
Khadija
02:09:28
I serve many first generation students and students with low incomes. Our university uses textbook rentals, so I am reluctant to ask them to pay for such an expensive program. Is there any way to bring lower cost options to students?
Flavio Mendez
02:09:47
The NSTA Learning Center Class Bundle includes a 1 year NSTA membership AND a Learning Center subscription

Tanya - the SciPacks represent the unpacked content from our standards
Don Boonstra
02:18:31
The SciPacks cover basic knowledge that is well vetted and doesn’t really change.
Flavio Mendez
02:18:35
The updateable resources include journal articles, web seminar archives, and e-book chapters
Tanya MacMartin, Ed.D.
02:19:13
Ok. So there's not really real-world applications in them per se...just basic textbook content knowledge?
George
02:20:20
How to exploit the NGSS Assessment Boundary statements?
Carolyn Mohr
