March 1, 2011 Subject: Need for grades 4-8 Physics, Chemistry and Earth Sciences educators to serve on testing committee
The Pennsylvania Department of Education and The Educational Testing Service (ETS) are developing a new Praxis Series TM licensure assessment for entry-level Pennsylvania Grade 4-8 teachers. A licensure assessment is intended to provide information regarding the knowledge and skills that are important for entry-level teachers to engage in independent practice.
K-12 teachers attending the Northeast/North-Central Geological Society of America meeting are eligible to
receive a $50 stipend to defray conference costs attend the conference for free ($75 value). (Note: Conference planners have increased the benefit from $50 to $75 to cover the conference registration costs).
This benefit is limited to the first 50 teachers who register by Monday March 7, 2011. Reimbursement will occur as a refund on the credit card used for registration.
PAESTA members may be interested in a series of free summer workshops for K12 Educators The Earth Space Science Partnership at Penn State is offering 4 workshops this summer. To learn more visit: http://www.essp.psu.edu/workshops
