Science in the Schoolyard supports the learning of Science Process through Scientific Inquiry and Inquiry-Based Schoolyard Investigations. The NYS Southern Tier Network has resources to support teachers with implementing schoolyard nature-based activities, such as citizen science and school yard gardens, with their students. Participants learn how to successfully engage students in standards-based activities connected to real-life science practice.
Created by teachers, for teachers, National Board Certification is the profession’s mark of accomplished teaching. National Board Standards and National Board Certification give teachers and schools the tools to define and measure teaching excellence. Similar to certification in fields like medicine, National Board Certification is a rigorous, peer-reviewed process that ensures that Board-certified teachers have proven skills to advance student achievement. Over a decade's worth of evidence shows that the students of Board-certified teachers out perform their peers in other classrooms on achievement tests and that schools and districts with a high concentration of NBCTs see marked improvements in school culture, collaboration and teacher retention.
