RIScienceTeachers is a wiki designed to serve as a shared resource for Rhode Island Science Teachers. Whether you are an administrator, in the classroom, or preparing to student teach, RIScienceTeachers has a wealth of information about teaching science in the Ocean State. Some of our offerings include:
  • "Unpacked" Science GSES
  • Released NECAP Items
  • PD opportunities for RI science teachers
  • Student opportunities in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering
  • Information about local and national science teaching conferences

There are numerous PD opportunities available to RI science teachers! Most of the events are taken from the RI Science PD and Student Opportunity newsletter maintained by RIDE's Science and Technology Specialist, Peter McLaren. To add other events this calendar, send your event information to either Peter McLaren, Rudy Kraus (RIC), or Jay Fogleman (URI)

College classes offered for teachers by local colleges.

This site, as is the case with all wikis, can be edited at any time by anyone who is a member of the site. All changes to the site are monitored to watch for online "vandalism." Wikis work by having many eyes review and refine each page so that they approach acceptable knowledge over time. If you see an error, please fix it! The information on this site, however, should always be considered a "work in progress."

It is intended that Rhode Island science teachers will be both the audience and authors of this resource. Except for the text of the GSEs, no content of this website should be seen as originating from or endorsed by URI or the Rhode Island Department of Education.
